“2017 Pasfika Fusion was another huge success! Every year I am blown away by student participation in the annual event held at The Regent on Broadway. There were 15 Secondary schools around the Manawatu region who participated in over 11 different categories. The theme this year was Communities of Learning exploring school pride and empowerment, with the motto ‘It takes a village to raise a child

Huge congratulations to the students who placed in the following:

  • 1st Place – Senior Poetry – Jotham Tesese
  • 1st Place – Cinematography – Yukiko Nakao-Afeaki (video below)
  • 2nd equal Place – Cinematography – Jotham Tesese (video below)
  • 3rd Place – Wearable Arts – Sisi Panikoula & Evaysha Hala

There are so many people to thank for their contribution to costumes, rehearsals, student supervision, cinematography and wearable arts. However a big thank you to Torika Warren-Peu and her team for the amazing effort and tireless nights in preparing for PI Fusion.

Thank you to everyone who continues to be a part of our village, supporting our Pasifika students to be proud and confident individuals.”
