Pacifica Art Centre - Corban Estate

We had a fantastic time on our visit to the Pacifica Art Centre at Corban Estate in Henderson.

There were five Pacific Mamas each from a different Pacific Island, including Fiji, Tonga, Cook Islands, Samoa and Niue.

They taught us how Pacifica music, songs and movements convey stories and passed on lessons of cultural identity and Pacifica protocols. They each demonstrated their traditional greetings and then we tried it for ourselves.

The weather wasn't the best, but we had the best time anyway. The bus was a bit late picking us up, but we made the most of our time and played games while we waited.
We were taught a new song and dance

The boys did different actions to the girls

The parents and teachers learnt just as much as the kids

One of the Pacific Mama's taught us the song and dance moves
