Once again Kohanga took part in Ngati Ranana's annual christmas concert at the Salvation Army Hall on Oxford Street, here in London. This year the tamariki had an extra special performance planned!

Earlier in November, Rosanna came in to help the tamariki compose their own performance! All the tamariki made drawings of Pacific Island tattoo and then put words to their drawings, with Whaea Rosanna selecting the best one so that she could help the Tamariki then create music for their performance!

As has become tradition over the last few years, the Tamariki from Kohanga got the concert off to a flying start with the first performance of the afternoons concert.
