Pasifika Cultural Day

The Pasifika Project Group have put together a Pasifika Cultural Day to celebrate the graduation of their students from the  5 week literacy programme also known as the Pasifika Family Journey, that encouraged the students to improve on their reading and writing. 

When: Friday, 26 March 2010          

             11.30pm – 2.00pm          

Where: St Faith’s Anglican Church Hall

           46 Hawke St, New Brighton

 

Who: All Welcome!!

There will be a range of international foods and BBQ, so come, and join the fun and experience the true Pacific flavours!

This is what Kelly McMillan has to say about what she is expecting to see on Friday:

” It sounds like it’s going to be a fun mixture of cultures on Friday and it will be interesting to see students trying food from another country”.

*Pasifika (sometimes spelt Pasefika) is the term used to describe Pacific Island migrants to New Zealand from Sāmoa, Tonga, the Cook Islands, Niue, Tokelau, Tuvalu, and other, smaller Pacific nations.

*Most of these Pacific nations were previously governed by New Zealand. Some, notably Niue and the Cook Islands, retain close administrative ties with New Zealand although they are now independent. Tokelau remains a dependent territory of New Zealand.
