Please learn this song! It is a farewell song Te Roopu Whanau composed 2 years ago to say goodbye to our Year 6s. It's sending a message that we will be lonely without them but we send them off with strength, pride, laughter and dancing!

You may remember Jennifer Moss, our previous music teacher? Well, Jen has been working hard on a number of musical ventures since leaving us... one of them spreading the word about 'African Drumming'. I am a passionate musician and aspiring drummer so I jumped at the chance to work with Jen and Robert Fugah (an African Drumming Specialist from Ghana).
As the video says, we learnt 4 rhythms in less than an hour and then performed it to the rest of the senior school. The drummers were amazing! What great performers they were!
I eventually nailed my part (not in this recording) though, it was running through my head for days afterwards...
What was your favourite part of the performance / workshop?
