The annual Pasifika Fiefia Night was a night of celebration, colour and togetherness!
It was a great blessing to have such a wonderful group of Year 13 leaders this year. Thank you Milika Fifita, Alisi Kava, Atu Lolohea, Lesili Tautua'a, Fotu Tu'ivai and Owen Vi. Your hard work and dedication toward Fiafia Night shone through the beautiful hall set-up, delicious food that their families served, intricate costumes and the outstanding performances that the Pasifika group performed. We will surely miss you all next year!
Malo 'aupito Year 13 parents! Oli Fifita, Luti Tautua'a, 'Alo Lolohea, Moana, Enasi Loamanu and Ana Kava for your big hearts in making all of the food for everyone to eat. Thank you for coming in on Wednesday night to decorate the hall, thank you for being such a great team of people! Hangē koe lau Fakatonga, "Si’i pe kae hā" . You may have been a small group but TOGETHER you were malohi.

Thank you to our Mrs Pentecost for always supporting our kids, to our teachers who were there- Lindsay Fish, ( helping with videoing), Lisa Sushames, ( running around collecting the pale) and to all the staff who were there and for their pale that they put on our students. THANK YOU!!
Thank you to all of the parents, and to our Pasifika community for their support in making the costumes: Lina Kivalu, Simi Penitani, Christina Paula Kivalu and Anamanu Mafi.
A massive thank you to Simi Penitani, Christina Paula Kivalu and Anamanu Mafi for teaching our students their hulas and for being great tutors to our group. We appreciate your support and we are so very grateful! Thank you to Uliti Uilou for being MC for the evening and keeping the crowd entertained when some of the costume changes took a little longer than expected!
A special thanks to BABS Op Shop for their generous donation to the group which meant the Year 13s were able to bring their vision for the night to fruition.
The greatest thanks goes to our Great God! For guiding and blessing our group with so many great memories this year and now Fiefia Night. May all the Glory go back to Him!!
