One year ago I created this blog as a resource for parents, educators and anyone wanting to learn this beautiful language of ours. My focus was on creating fun experiences for my 4 children, and in that time my children have blossomed. Never did I imagine that one year later I would be putting those personal experiences to the test at my very own Manulua Tongan playgroup. 

This is a Tongan saying and is only fitting for my gratitude for this experience, and the wonderful people I have met along the way. “Koe koloa’ ‘a Tonga ko e fakamalo” – Our thanks is the only treasure we have to give in return.

Ko e me’a pe te u lava ke fakamalo  ki he ‘Eiki mafimafi’. I only thing I can do is to give thanks to the Almighty Lord.

Hema xo
