School students Tarani Omao (left), Pati Estall, Gina Vaine Keu, Adyn Paige (NZ-based rugby player), Paige Anguna and little Cassius Anguna, who likes to be part of the family team, keep busy at the start of their holidays working part time “devanning” boxes.

The students enjoy their part time job in the mornings and have the afternoons to pursue their leisure activities and catch up with friends.

This week school students are looking forward to Te Maeva Nui float parade on Friday and watching the cultural shows next week.

Since the weather has been “too cold”, spending the holidays soaking in the sea is not much of an option.

Schools closed on Friday, July 22 and will reopen for Term 3 on Monday, August 8.
