Tuvalu Language Week runs from 1 to 7 October 2017.
Tuvalu is a small Pacific island nation that lies midway between Australia and Hawaii. In 2006, Tuvaluan people were the seventh largest Pacific ethnic group in New Zealand, making up 1 percent of New Zealand’s Pacific population.
Tuvalu Language Week provides the opportunity to celebrate and nurture the language and culture of Tuvalu in your classroom and school community. The theme of the week provides you with the opportunity to explore with your students the nature of identity, and the way language connects us to who we are.
