Pasifika students are proud of their culture and make a significant contribution to Newlands College. Staff, students and families all work together to support the well-being, learning and achievement of the students through a variety of ways.

These include:

  • The appointment of a Pasifika Liaison Teacher, Ms Ryan. Pasifika students, parents and fono are encouraged to contact her whenever the need arises, no matter what the issue is.
  • The allocation of every Pasifika student to a mentor group run by a senior member of staff.
  • Celebrating Pasifika culture though a range of performance opportunities.
  • Regular meetings of Pasifika families to discuss a range of topics related to the well-being, learning and achievement of Pasifika students.
  • Opportunities for Pasifika student leadership through the Komiti Pasifika, the School Council Pasifika Representative, and leadership of teaching staff professional development groups.
