Despite being in lockdown, our Glenavon community celebrated Uike Kātoanga’i ‘o e lea faka-Tonga - Tonga Language Week – online.
This year’s theme was Fakakoloa 'o Aotearoa 'aki 'a e Ako Lelei, which means ‘enriching Aotearoa with holistic education’. It was so great to see the kids show pride in their own culture; they got dressed up in their traditional Tongan outfits, sung their Tongan national anthem, shared information about Tonga, and shared a warm message about staying safe while in lockdown.

Meanwhile, in times like these there are always people and families doing it extra tough. Kai Connect is a Glenavon Hub project, run in partnership with Blockhouse Bay Baptist church. They worked behind the scenes to prepare kai parcels for our families in need. The food was supplied by Fair Food, with some donated by locals. Photos below supplied by Glenavon Hub
