Ni sa Bula Vinaka everyone!

On Thursday 11th May, the Pasifika team were lucky enough to have a team from Le Va come down to run a workshop with our Pasifika Students. This workshop was called ‘I AM’, a workshop based on exploring Pasifika culture and values to reinforce the fact that there is strength is being Pasifika.

As Pacific people we are great at uplifting others but sometimes not as good at uplifting ourselves. At the end of the session students were empowered to write a legacy statement to help strengthen their self-worth and help ‘unleash their full potential.’

Here is one student’s statement:

“I am who I am because of my God-fearing parents and community.

I see my parent make sacrifices for our family.

I hear my Nena wake up in early mornings and pray for our family every day.

I try my best to make my parents proud by trying to finish my degree.

My Pasifika values are reciprocity.

I will live out this value by working more towards making sure my actions match my words.

I hope to finish this degree to make my parents proud and try give back to the village that raised me.

I am who I am because of my God-fearing parents and community.”
