Maria and I pay for our haus meri’s two kids, Toshi and Kayline to attend one of the better schools here in Kokopo. Today (13th September 2013) the school celebrated PNG’s Independance Day, officially next Monday 16th September, with the children dressing up in their traditional attire. So Kayline, whose mother Stephanie comes from Pomio area was dressed as a Pomio meri and Toshi, whose father Chris comes from the Duke of York group of Islands represented that area.
As usual it was a very colorful display and these are some of the photos I took.
In this photo Kayline and Toshi having some refreshment before the events.
