Guam - A performance was held at Ordot-Chalan Pago Elementary School to close off Mes Chamorro (Chamorro Month) celebrations. Chamorro teacher Julia Shore says students participated in song and dance along with chants in the afternoon.

She says it's important for the children all over Guam to participate in such events to keep the culture and language alive, noting, "It's very important to perpetuate the culture because through culture, we teach the language. That is very important because the children love the culture and they want to learn the language especially through the culture. Also, dances and chanting and arts."

The school will also hold a carnival and will crown its rai and la raina on Friday from 4-8pm.
