The new school year has kicked off for some schools. Public schools and several other private institutions will ring in the new school in less than a month. Parents are currently not only shopping for school supplies and uniforms, they are also taking the kids out to enjoy the final days of summer with family outings at the beach, the movies, and various parks across the island. Samoa News caught up with this group of kids, who spent this past weekend camping at a beach on the east side. [photo: courtesy]
