The third grade lū‘au is a cherished event marking the finale of a yearlong study of Hawaiian culture and history. The lū‘au took place on Friday, following weeks of learning, prep work and efforts from the campus community.
Students observed the start of the lū‘au preparations with an opening ceremony, during which they passed an imu stone around their circle, infusing it with positive intentions.
Students helped prep the imu and harvested ‘uala (sweet potato) in the Kosasa Community gardens, among other activities.
Third graders enjoyed the fruits of their labor by dining on the delicious lū‘au feast.
To continue the festivities, students had fun with a variety of traditional Hawaiian games.
Video highlights showcased the variety of activity.
