QUEEN KAAHUMANU DAY
Na Keiki o Ke Kula o Kaahumanu
The Children of Kaahumanu School
May Day is Lei Day in Hawaii.
At our school, Queen Kaahumanu Day (or QK Day) is OUR May Day.
This special event happens during the second week of May and features performances by our students. This event is supported by our entire Q.K.S. ohana.
The purpose of the event is to provide the students of Queen Kaahumanu School the opportunity to show evidence of learning experienced in the performing arts through the demonstration of quality performances.
Students practice the grade level dances that they will perform for their families and the invited guests. (See pictures of our talented students during one of our previous schoolwide practices in the slide show below. They are awesome!)
Ladies from the Ahahui Kaahumanu Society, members from the State and District Offices, and representatives from the community are invited guests to the event.
The event culminates with a performance by the Royal Hawaiian Band.
It is a day filled with ALOHA!
