Kia Ora, talofa lava, malo e lelei, faakalofa 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!

I think the young people and their Whanau participate in this event, because there are lots of people that have friends that enjoy and have fun at these events, and it is a good way to participate and interact with others. And show their skills.

Things that I think that the performers have to do to become fit and prepared for the event. What I think they need to do to become ready for polyfest is eat healthy, run (to build stamina) and practice every day.

How this event promotes the different cultures. I think this event promotes other cultures because if you are wanting to dance in the Tongan group you don't need to be Tongan to join so it is multicultural. And there will be a mix of different cultures in the group.

I am looking forward to the Polyfest because I really enjoy events such as Pacifica, and also looking forward to the school trip to Polyfest.
