About Us and Our Programme
Nuanua Kindergarten in the heart of Cannons Creek nurtures the Samoan and Tokelauan languages and culture. Our teachers are fluent in these languages and use them throughout the learning experiences and activities.
We have a brand new building, opened in 2015, with state of the art facilities. We operate as a community, Nuanua village, with space for community activities and services.
Every morning children gather for Lotu (devotions). We start on a positive note with blessings that set the tone for the day. This is also a time to welcome new children and families to the Nuanua village. Every Friday Rev Perema from PIC Cannons Creek joins us for Lotu.
We celebrate traditional cultural events including Samoan language week and independence day, Tokelauan Language week and other national days that relate to our families and cultures. We celebrate with music, dance and food.
