Polinetia Fa'atasi - The road to Pasifika by Nature 2017 

For the last Term our Polynesian Cultural group - Polinetia Fa'atasi have been preparing really hard for the Waikato/Bay of Plenty Secondary Schools competition - Pasifika by Nature. 

Tutored by Rangikura Ford and Tatyana Stowers, the group of 30 students are entering a twenty minute compilation of items from Samoa, Hawaii, Tahiti, Tonga and the Cook Islands centered around the theme for the competition this year, "Hear our voice, our voice matters". 

Throughout the school holidays the students have practiced from 10am to 6om perfecting their choreography and singing. 

We are thankful to the Tokoroa community for supporting our Food Market Day in Term 1 which helped to buy all the resources for our new costumes. 

Our dress rehearsal for family and friends will be held Friday 5th May 2017, 7pm at Tokoroa High School, $5 for High School students and adults and a gold coin for children. 

Wish us luck! 

Power Up - Pasifika!

After a very successful first year at Forest View, Power Up - Pasifika will be returning Tuesday 9th May, to Forest View High School. 

This after school homework and mentoring programme has been a well received initiative for all students of Tokoroa, from Early childhood to Secondary School. Tokoroa hosts two Power Stations, at FVHS on Tuesday evenings from 3.15pm - 6pm and Wednesday evenings at Tokoroa High School from 3.30pm - 6pm. 

Qualified Teachers and Support Staff from our Tokoroa Schools and Centres run workshops with our young people with great focus on Literacy and Numeracy. All family members are invited with a special encouragement for Parents to attend and work alongside their children. 

We are so grateful to South Waikato Pacific Islands Community Services (SWPICS) for their ongoing support of our young people and for enabling this initiative to come to Tokoroa and to Forest View High School. 

See you there!
