I want to give a HUGE MALO ‘AUPITO and SHOUT OUT to C. Wilkin from the United Kingdom for the generous donations of school supplies to the students and staff of Matamaka GPS. We received toothbrushes, toothpaste, colored pencils, erasers and more.
I would also like to thank my sister Ciara and her friend Katie for also bringing school supplies to Matamaka GPS. They had brought some arts and crafts supplies and games for the library.
Lastly, more SHOUT OUTs to Ann Blum (USA), Trisha Kramer (USA), and some yachties from New Zealand for the recent donations of children’s book for our little library. The students always enjoy reading new books. Furthermore, a THANK YOU to SPREP (from Samoa) and Darien Book Aid (from the USA) for additional reading materials and technology equipments.
I just received awesome news that Matamaka GPS will soon receive a shipment of books from the International Book Project. This organization is based from the USA. They help develop libraries from around the world. To learn more about this great organization or to help sponsor shipments of books to schools from around the world, check out their website. Darien Book Aid supports underprivileged schools around the world and are always looking for donors from the around also!

One last thing (I promise), THANK YOU for the people who have sent postcards for our postcard project. My students and I have been swamped every week. We will send out the first set of postcards back from Tonga by the end of July. Not all the cards will be written by my students, because there are simply too many postcards. I wrote back to most of them. Please be patient, we will get caught up someday. Please be advised that mail from Tonga could take awhile.
Alright that’s it. MALO :D
