The Imanuela Akatemia Early Childhood Learning students were cheerful and excited on the first day back at school yesterday for the start of Term 4.
During the two-week
holidays, student Usaia Ravula spent a week on the island of Mangaia with the
Children’s Ministry tour.
“It was good, I
went to the caves on Mangaia, I had fun… and I ate,” he said shyly.
Ratu Tusitima was
happy to talk about his dance performance for the Fiji Day celebrations during
the school break. “I danced, I was good, and I like holidays,” he said, “but I
like school too and I’m happy.”
Term 4, the last
education semester of the year, is when the popular annual prize giving awards
for each of the schools in the Cook Islands are held. School breaks up on
Friday, December 11 for the long festive season holidays.
