Kia Ora, talofa lava, malo e lelei, fakaalofa lahi atu, kia orana, bula vinaka, namaste and greetings!!  It’s Pasifika week in Aotearoa, this means it’s a week long celebration of all things Pacific.  This includes the birthday dance we had with Mrs Tele’a!  Part of the celebration is the Polyfest!  This Thursday we are planning to travel to Manukau to take part in some workshops and then visit stages.  The two stages we will be visiting will be the Maori and Diversity stages.  Did you know that this event - the Polyfest celebrates 40 years since it’s beginning?  Awesome isn’t it!  

Every year young people and their families participate in this event to represent the culture and their school. Lots and lots of people go to the polyfest to see all the different pacific dances.

When people perform they wear lots of different things like makeup, bracelets,hair bands, and things that represent them and where they came from. The performers need to work hard to get all the thing they need.

Ploy-fest encourages younger people to show how they dance and what they wear, polyfest also encourages to know other peoples cultures as well.

I am looking forward to experience what other cultures do and what they wear, and how they dance and perform. I cant wait until polyfest its going to be so cool
