Approximately 9% of our children are from Pacific nations and cultures. Our Pasifika families originate from Samoa, Tonga, Fiji, Atiu and Tokelau. We embrace opportunities to be culturally responsive to a Pasifika children so that their cultural background is preserved. Those children from Pacific backgrounds who have English as a second language receive extra support in class and a teacher aide works with them individually or in groups, as suits their learning needs.
During the Pasifika Fono in 2013, a relationship with our families descended from Pacific Island nations was initiated. It is intended that this group will meet regularly, coordinated by one of our parents. If you would like to meet with other Pasifika families, please contact the school office.
