Tokaima’ananga church’s older members have been treated to a performance from Stutton Park school as part of a year-long initiative to get people moving.

Stutton’s Iuniti Sia Ua students performed faivas (dances) during the entertainment activities last month.

Students performing during the visit included junior and senior students at the schools.

“The elderly were so excited,” Apitanga Kailea Mafi, a teacher at Stutton, said. 

“You can imagine how excited the elderly were to see the students entertaining them,” she said.

“The students value the importance of honouring the elderly for what they have contributed to the community while they were young,” Mafi said in Tongan.

The Principal of the school, Mr Esera. said the programme, known as School Partnership with the Community, would continue in the future and would be taken to various groups in the community.

The students, teacher and parents of the school were welcomed to the church by Melesiu Tu’iha’angana, Rev. Hola Paea and older members of the congregation.
