Pasifika event fosters unity in Hamilton

Thomas Campbell Reporter from Hamilton Press

Kia ora neighbours,

Hamilton schools are hosting a mini cultural festival to celebrate the diversity of our town.

Elton Snell, teacher in charge of Pasifika Studies at Peachgrove Intermediate School says the Pasifika event is called Keep It Fresh.

He says the main aim of the festival is "to foster unity amongst a diverse Aotearoa."

The festival will bring together different Pacific cultures in order to celebrate who we are in a modern Kiwi society, Snell says.

It will be held at the Gallaghers Performing Arts Centre at the Waikato University on Saturday October 31 from 11am - 4 pm.

Amongst schools taking part will be Peachgrove Intermediate, Fairfield Primary School, St John's College, Hamilton Girls High School and Hillcrest High School.

Joining them will be some Pasifika groups from Waikato University including their Tongan, Samoan and Fijian groups as well as the HAMCIA - Hamilton Cook Island Association Cultural Performing Group.

The event is backed by the University and K'aute Pasifika.
