Fiafia 2016 - (Post 1)

WALT: Write a quick text talking about Fiafia and how we are feeling about.


I have a question for you. What two days start with T that are not Tuesday and Thursday?... Today and tomorrow! Those are the two days we are going to be performing in front of a crowd on stage. Today we are going to be having our rehearsal today and the actual Fiafia tomorrow. This is my last Fiafia as we have Fiafia every second year. To fill in an exciting thing for year in between Fiafia that extra year we have a production which is next year.

Fiafia has been going over 16 years. It is all about us (the students) performing in different groups with our amazing tutors. There culture groups and other groups like hip hop. All together we have 18 Fiafia groups. Some groups have two groups like for seniors and juniors. Other groups may have more one groups because they have one group for boys and one group for girls. An example of a group is the senior Samoan group. I am in that group and our tutor is Timmy. Our dance was not to  challenging to learn or to easy learn. The song to the dance is called Samoa e.

One thing I love about Fiafia is the food and performances. They are both so good, especially the food. There are lots of stalls where you can buy from. The stalls are only open a 
certain amount of time. Talking about time, there is also a certain time that we have to be there to get dressed. Before I get really excited, rehearsals come first before the actual event. We had a rehearsal with all the groups just after morning tea. This practise went until Lunch. It was a long rehearsal but I survived. I pretended that the rehearsals were the real event so I tried to do my best to sing, to smile and to dance. Just as I did in the rehearsal I will try to do my best.


Fiafia is here!! In the intermediate block, we wrote about Fiafia and how I feel about it. I posted this two days later so might not make to much sense. I wrote this in two days so that is a another reason it might not make sense. This is my writing for before Fiafia and I will be writing another one about Fiafia the actual event.

  1. Kia ora Talita, sounds like you had an awesome time at Fiafia. I really enjoyed the food stalls as well. Were you in the same group at Fiafia 2 years ago? I enjoyed reading your Fiafia post.

  2. Great writing Talita.
    I LOVED watching you dance with the Samoan group - in fact, THAT was my highlight!
    Can't wait until the DVD comes out.
    Love Mum
