2. Special Character

Subject: War Memorial Library, Lower Hutt - Covid Level 2 Restrictions

Kia ora,

We would like you to be aware that owing to the Covid Level 2 restrictions of 2 metre physical distancing, we have very limited space in the War Memorial Library, and are not able to raise the maximum occupancy level above 50 people. As a result, we have virtually no capacity for school students wishing to study for long periods of time in the library. In previous years large numbers of your students have used this site for study and we regret that we will not be able to accommodate them this year. Obviously, if the restrictions around social distancing are eased in any way, or the region is allowed to move to Level 1 we will happily welcome your students back.

Tuvalu Lanugage Week 2021 

The theme is: Fakaakoigina tou iloga kae tukeli ke magoi mote ataeao - Embracing our culture and a more secure, vibrant future.

Tuvalu is a small Pacific island nation that lies midway between Australia and Hawaii. “Tuvalu” means eight islands although there are actually nine inhabited islands. Five of the islands are coral atolls – ring-shaped reefs or series of islets caused by submerged volcanos. The other four islands consist of land rising abruptly from the seabed.

Try saying hello in Te Gana Tuvalu this week - Tālofa!

Word of the Day: Fakafetai - Thank you
