Some enthusiastic Pasifika teachers have formed a Pasifika group in the Bay of Plenty to support and acknowledge our Pasifika learners. Our intentions are to strengthen relationships and build cultural awareness with our fanau and the wider community.
We believe the outcomes will provide a platform that will support the Pasifika Education Plan’s vision to see “five out of five Pasifika learners participating, engaging and achieving in education through building identity, languages and culture.”
To recognise and celebrate the diversity of our Pasifika cultures.
To support and encourage the cultural identity of our tamaiti.
To promote and build the awareness of our Pasifika cultures in the wider community."
