Video Conference with Hawaii

Early today the year 7 and 8 Extension Group had the privilege of having a video conference with Kea'au and Nanakuli Elementary Schools. We talked about the kinds of technology Point England School uses and the different kinds of native birds and plants there are in Hawaii. They also told us a lot about the Tsunami Museum the story was told by a teacher named Brynn. Each school shared something about their culture and what they do in class or around the school. 

To share what we do at school we showed them a video of things like the technology we use and the awesome teachers we have. The whole point of this Google Hangout was because a Hawaiian waka called the Hokule'a is going sail down to Pt England Reserve on the 24 of March and all the Manaiakalani schools will come down and sing a Waiata that will greet the Hokule'a and its crew members, I think the whole point of this waka sailing around is to teach people about the traditional navigation ways that the Hawaiian use.
