Mission Heights Junior College
Art form: Pacific Arts
Project name: Mission Heights Junior College Pasifika Drumming
Project information: We will work with our creative partners to teach our Pasifika students drumming so that that we can help foster a positive cultural identity of our students. Our school has a growing population of Pasifika students, and this will provide a culturally responsive space to foster and develop creativity. We hope this will enhance student well-being through self-expression and immersion in Pasifika creative practices. It aligns with school Pasifika Action Plan to develop and deliver a curriculum that is innovative and relevant for our ākonga. We hope this will allow our students to connect with their cultural identity and at the same time be able to share this with the wider community.
Project starting: May 2022
