    1. Hello Mrs Grant!

      My family doesn't celebrate Christmas. Is it OK if I just sing a Christmas song with my sisters?


      Aye :)

      1. Kia ora Aye

        I'll be filling in for Mrs Grant today.

        Yes of course that's ok! I can't wait to hear it!

        Meri Kirihimete, Merry Christmas,

      2. Hello Benjamin!

        OK, thank you! Have a Merry Christmas!

    2. Hey Benjamin,

      My name is Marwah. My family does not celebrate Christmas either and we are not keen in singing. Is it ok if I can put the video of me and my group dancing from school instead.

      ¬Nga Mihi

    3. Kia ora Marwah, for Activity 1: Kick Start you are invited to share a favourite song to celebrate. This could be for any reason you celebrate at or home or at school. If you decide to share your group dancing from school include some information in your post about the dance for your readers too.

      Ngā mihi,
      Mrs Grant
