Steel Drum Band

Talofa lava bloggers,

Our class had the exciting opportunity of opening our Whanau Hui last Wednesday night as Wesley Intermediate's very own Steel Drum Band. Room 5 students only had a few weeks of practice to learn this song during their sessions every Wednesday afternoon. They did an amazing job despite being very nervous and excited.

A massive thank you to Leticia Viljoen for teaching our students how to play the steel pan drums and to Mr Sa, our deputy principal, for organising this amazing opportunity for Room 5.

Can you make out what song they were playing? Comment down below.
