Students in Kindergarten – grade 12 shared stories through mele and dance at this year’s Academy Holokū Pageant and Junior School May Day programs.
This year’s Academy Holokū Pageant and middle school May Day program theme was “E Mo‘olelo Kākou: our Mo‘olelo, our Kuleana.” The theme served as a reminder of the role that stories play in the transmission of knowledge from generation to generation.
The programs were a compilation of mele that are favorites among Punahou’s faculty and staff, and highlighted stories of leadership, place and love.
Students in kindergarten through grade 5 celebrated their greatest connection to one another: that they all share the same home. The theme, “Ku‘u Kulāiwi Aloha,” proudly honored Hawai‘i through stories and mele recounting the beauty of their beloved island home.
