Term One always sees our school overflowing with colourful costumes, beautiful singing, beating drums and elegant dancing in the afternoons and early evenings, as cultural groups practise dynamically to prepare for the annual ASB Maori and Pasifika Polyfest. This year we entered 5 Cultural groups and 7 Speakers in theSpeech competition. Atotal of 192 students performed on the Maori, Niuean, Diversity and Samoan stages from Wednesday 15th March – Saturday 18th March. Groups also performed for our community at the school Fiafia night, which is a popular and entertaining event of our school calendar. Our groups all performed and behaved impeccably.Thank you to all the Staff and Tutors involved.
