Pasifika Awards 2019

Andrew Spittle —

Congratulations to Kate Tofia-Will and Ariana Poleo, whose academic successes were recognised at the Otago Polytechnic Pacific Island Recognition Awards.

Ariana received the award for a senior student, while Kate repeated her achievement of 2018 and was awarded the junior award for the second year running.

Both students are consistent high achievers across their subjects, as well as being kind, involved and inspirational Logan Park students. 

The Awards evening also celebrated the achievements of past Logan Park students who have gone on to tertiary success at Otago Polytechnic, in fields ranging from Nursing to Fashion and Design.  It was great to see Ariana and Kate's achievements being celebrated in this context.
