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 talented Year 13 students lead the group by example and aim to build understanding of Pasifika i

dentity, culture and customs through song and dance. Rehearsals take place during lunchtimes and after school, 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 Extravaganza, Feast Day, assemblies, Pacific Language Weeks, Combined Cultural Variety Night with St. Bernard’s College, and the annual Hutt Fest which is a local Poly festival showcasing Pasifika talent from schools around the Hutt Valley region.

For more information on the Polynesian Cultural group or Hutt Fest please contact Mrs Luse Komaisavai on 04-566 1089 ext 238 or KomaisavaiL@sacredheartcollege.school.nz
