On Friday, Bernard Mangakahia came to school to present ‘Mana. The Spirit of Polynesia.’ We all packed into the school hall ready for the show. For an hour, Bernard performed dances, told stories and encouraged us to accept new challenges, to have dreams and to believe in ourselves.
Bernard performed an American Indian Hoop Dance and a dance from Samoa. He showed us some amazing poi moves and got us all onto our feet for a bit of Hip Hop.
Throughout the whole performance, Bernard encouraged us to find the inner strength - our Mana.
What a great way to end a busy week!
