Polyfest 2015

Kia Ora, talofa lava, malo e lelei, faakalofa lahi atu, kia orana, bula vinaka, namaste and greetings!!  It’s Pasifika week in Aotearoa, this means it’s a week long celebration of all things Pacific.  This includes the birthday dance we had with Mrs Tele’a!  Part of the celebration is the Polyfest!  This Thursday we are planning to travel to Manukau to take part in some workshops and then visit stages.  The two stages we will be visiting will be the Maori and Diversity stages.  Did you know that this event - the Polyfest celebrates 40 years since it’s beginning?  Awesome isn’t it!  

College students and there families participate in this wonderful event because it is an awesome experience. It brings you out of your comfort zone but it is way worth it ! There will be heaps of food for sale and traditional clothes.

It helps people who came from different countries to experience more of our culture and our what we do instead of visiting every country just to know more about it you can come to polyfest and experience heaps of countries in just 1 country. They will have heaps of traditional clothes and methods. It will be an awesome day !!!

There will be heaps of students from around Auckland participating in this event. Children from Tamaki College and Hillary College ...

I am excited to go to learn about countries that I don't know about and experience the way the make stuff and also what they eat !!
