The boys at Don Bosco are known country-wide for their natural “siva” (dancing) abilities.
This year, their reputation stretched up the hill to the Australian High Commissioner, Ms Sue
Langdon, who extended an invite for our boys to perform at her residence for the annual
‘Australia Day’ celebration. A small selection of boys gave up their time during their
Christmas holidays to prepare for the event. This rehearsal process, enabled the boys to give
an outstanding performance, which included singing the national anthems of both Samoa
and Australia, and performing many traditional Samoan dances which included the ‘To!’
dance – a comedic piece originally created by one of the Don Bosco teachers, Isitolo Stanley.
Just as the performance drew to a close, the boys wowed the audience with a special
rendition of the Australian classic ‘Waltzing Matilda’, which was applauded by both
Australian expats and important guests alike.
