The week before Spring Break was a busy one for the Class of 2027 as they spent each day preparing for Third-Grade Lū‘au. Students used traditional methods and tools to weave lauhala headbands, make haupia from scratch, transform kalo into pa‘i‘ai and wrap chicken in kalo leaf bundles for laulau.
This year marks the first year Punahou’s Spring Break is two weeks long. The intention behind extending the break was to provide students opportunities for restorative downtime moderating the pace of the school year and to provide opportunities for students to participate in travel or other experiences that cannot occur during regular school weeks.
