Polynesian Cultural Group

Talofa lava, Kia Orana, Taloha Ni, Malo e lelei, Ni sa bula vinaka, Talofa, Fakaalofa lahi atu and Warm Pacific greetings to you all!

The Polynesian Cultural group encourages our Pasifika girls to take pride in their culture and is open to all students at Sacred Heart College. The group is led by the talented Year 13 students who lead by example and aim to build understanding of Pasifika identity, culture and customs through song and dance. Rehearsals take place during lunchtimes and afterschool, as well as the school holidays.

The core values of the Polynesian Cultural group include:

• Importance of Identity (language and culture)
• Importance of Family, community and group
• Respect for our elders and leaders
• Relationships based on Trust
• Spirituality
• Discipline

The group plays an important role in college life, sharing the Pasifika culture and performing for special occasions including the Big Bang concert, Feast Day, Gold Duke of Edinburgh Awards, the opening of the new Performing Arts Centre and our very own spectacular Sacred Heart College Pasifika Fiafia Night event showcasing Pasifika talent from schools around the Hutt Valley and Wellington region.

For more information on the Polynesian Cultural group or the Pasifika Fiafia Night please contact Miss Sinapi Taeao on 5661089 ext 240 or TaeaoS@sacredheartcollege.school.nz
