Koroboro International School in Port Moresby starts independence celebration - with children participating in traditional dances

WHEN we were once kids, we become curious and thus curiosity takes us to clock down many things in life that we remember today. Most of them we learn by experimenting. Today's kids are no difference to those days.

Young Felipe below in traditional attire with his school mates take on the blunt challenge to try something new and this time they wanted to try a traditional dance called the "war dance" from the Ginigolo village in the Rigo District, Central Province, Papua New Guinea. 

In celebration Papua New Guinea's independence this week, the kids performed the war dance amongst many other activities that took place today at Koroboro International School in Port Moresby.

Have fun-full festive week and enjoy the celebrations!

Happy viewing!
