Pasifika Fusion

Be part of Green Bay High School’s multicultural Pasifika group

Last year, Green Bay High School was represented on the Diversity Stage, where students from different cultures joined together to perform a dynamic dance item. Liana Grey  was one of the founding members of this group and wrote the following piece for our school magazine:

“Being part of our school’s first Pasifika group to take the stage at Polyfest was an amazing experience. To perform cultural island dances in front of peers, family and a large audience of people you don’t know takes a lot of courage; especially if you have never done it before. It also takes a lot of courage to learn a cultural dance in such a short period of time (7 weeks!) which our group, Pasifika Fusion, were able to achieve, including students from all year levels. We learnt a Samoan Siva, a song and intro dance, tutored by the wonderful Maggie, to perform at Polyfest 2015 – this was the first time Green Bay High School was ever been represented at this event! We practiced up to five times a week and also during the weekends to perfect the overall performance, which we debuted in front of Japanese exchange students and our whanau, who were all very proud of us.”
