Hanahau'oli School 99th Birthday Assembly


Hau‘oli Lā Hānau Hanahau‘oli School!

On Monday, September 11th, Mrs. Alison Baclig with the help of the Kukunaokalā students announced the 99th birthday of Hanahau‘oli School. Children sang Happy Birthday and everyone was invited to write or draw their wishes on a large orange card posted on the Kukunaokalā board. 

At Assembly, today Kulāiwi teacher, Mrs. Kathy Galdeira, and Kukunaokalā teacher, Mrs. Alison Baclig, shared the oldest tradition of the school – the ringing of the BELL!

They led a conversation with the students of what it’s like to be 99 years old. We closed the Assembly by learning a beautiful song written by former Music teacher, Mrs. Chris Mullen, led by the Kulāiwi students, “The Hanahau‘oli Lullaby”. Ask your child to sing it to you!

Enjoy our new Hanahau'oli Lullaby sung by our entire school in this video captured by one of our Hui parents, David Yew. Mahalo, David!

Hanahau'oli Lullaby
This is our school
To cherish and love
To keep and protect
And take care of
In Makiki we gather
Together as oneBeneath the green trees
And under the sun
This is our school. . . this is our school

With the song of our bell
Our school day begins
We see smiling faces
That welcome us in
From Juniors to 6th grade
We gather each day
To wonder and learn
To work and to play
This is our school. . . this is our school.

Created by the Kulāiwi Class of 2004 with Mrs. Chris Mullen
