Oh Colwill School. Each day proves to host new challenges which can be anything from the kids trying to understand my accent, teaching swimming, and teaching by New Zealand standards. Sometimes it can get pretty frustrating but then I realize where I am. Today I got to watch the primary grades in the kapahaka. Seeing 6 year old boys perform the haka with so much pride and respect for their culture was a real treat. The Maori song and dance is so powerful even if I can't understand all of the words.
Tomorrow I teach my first lesson...wish me luck!
