Latai’s Lockdown Diary – 10 years of age

Malō e lelei, my name is Latai and I’m nine years old. I am Tongan and I go to St Anne’s Catholic School in Manurewa. This is my story of what Lockdown was like for me.

I am an only child and I have two bubbles. I stay with my mum on school days and I go to my dad’s house on weekends and holidays. I wasn’t sure what to expect during this Lockdown but I was looking forward to spending time at home with my mum and my baby cousin.
