Polyfest is all about Pasifika pride and having fun
Hundreds of youngsters from 22 primary schools across Hastings and Napier celebrated Pasifika culture in September – putting on a fantastic show.
Hawke’s Bay Junior Polyfest 2019 was hosted by Flaxmere Primary School again. “They did a fantastic job at short notice,” said Junior Polyfest co-ordinator Anna Marie Faavae.
Song and dance f
rom the Cook Islands, Samoa, Tonga, Fiji, Hawaii and other Pacific cultures lit up the stage.
“It is a wonderful celebration of everything that is fantastic about our Pasifika culture. The children love it, right from the practising through to performing at Polyfest.”
Next year’s Polyfest will be hosted by Hastings Intermediate School.
