Samoan Language Week recount by Ivan
I chose to make a coconut bowl for Samoan language week. First we had to scrape the skin off a coconut with a knife – which took me a whole day.
The next day we had to halve the coconut with a hammer and scrape the coconut meat off. I was doing it pretty well but I soon had to stop because some of the brown stuff went into the meat and that would make it less tasty when we turned it into a dessert. This also took a whole day.
The next day I asked Mr Raj to make my coconut into a bow. I smoothed it with sandpaper and Mr Raj used the angle grinder to smooth the edges.
The next day I got sick so I wasn’t there on Thursday and Friday.
