Kia orana, Talofa lava, Malo e lelei, Fakalofalahi atu, Taloha Ni, Nisa bula vinaka and warm Pacific greetings everyone.
St Mary’s Pasifika Parent Asosi is a group that aids the school, teachers and the parents to enable our young Pasifika woman to discover their true potential and embrace the opportunities for a successful future.
The Asosi is made up of all the Pasifika Parents at the school and is run by a committee of parents who help support our Pasifika students by liaising between the parents, the school, and the Board of
Trustees. We promote the welfare of our girls and help cultivate a Pasifika identity at the school. We do this by promoting understanding, strengthen and maintain identities, languages and cultures of the Pasifika girls and their families.
The Parent Asosi believe that:
When teachers, parents and families are engaged in our children's learning journey, they are given the opportunity to succeed in school.
We are so excited to begin another year and hope you will join us in our efforts to promote Pasifika.
culture, engagement, and community building. If this is your first year at St Mary's College, the Asosi
Committee extends a very warm welcome to you and your family.
