Tamak Int - International Sasa Instructions 2

This video Josh, Sabrina, Moli, Sosaia and Lucy go in-depth into the Sasa. We detail all the calls that you need for a Sasa, and translate them into English. The Sasa that is created by our students is repeated three times so you can practise and learn it! We also explain some of the calls and have the creation of animals for the Sasa for the enjoyment of those watching. (although we apologise in advance for the efforts of some students and no to answer this question now there are no tigers in Samoa!). This is intended to tie in with the slideshow and other videos in the series. Written and produced by the student presenters at Tamaki Intermediate School on Tuesday 27th October 2008.

I love your blog. How great to share your great culture with the rest of us. We have a few Aboriginal kids at our school who show their dances and we have quite a large fgroup of Maori kids who perform the haka for us. They have taught their dances to the other kids at school too. What a great idea to put the instructions on the blog though.
My Year 4 and 5 students have just started making an online magazine. It would be great if some of you could visit the site and leave some comments in the discussion tabs for them. They might improve their editing skills if they are given advice from other kids - they don't always listen to me! Our e-zine address is:
Our class blog is at:
We'd love you to come and visit.

Thanks for the feedback, now if you interested in doing the Australian Sasa bit that would really be excellent. The students are all out of class today but will descend "en masse" on your blog tomorrow. Thanks so much for the kind words
Mr Webb and Room Six.
