O Iou Ala I Malo - Our Valued and Respected Samoan Bi-lingual Teaching Team

Why Consider Bi-lingual Education for Your Children at our school in O lou Ala I Malo / Manumea Team:

  • Providing a smooth transition from early childhood – Aoga Amata to our school.
  • Students learn better when new concepts are introduced in their first language.
  • Our classroom programmes aim to deliver teacher instruction in both mediums - that is using both Samoan and English languages.
  • By the time our students leave our unit at Year 6, we aim to develop within our students their ability to express themselves accurately using both the Samoan and English languages in (a) their speech, (b) their reading and writing, (c) and raising their achievement levels to national norms or better. 
  • In our teaching programme our teachers will empower your children in their learning especially through co-operative learning activities.
  • We focus on ensuring all children can express themselves accurately orally before they express themselves accurately in written form.
