Engaging with our Pasifika parents, families and communities

What are schools doing to build relationships and engage with our Pasifika parents?  There are a lot of ideas and strategies that schools are using to work with our Pasifika parents. It will be good if we could all share our ideas and stories to support our colleagues.

Are schools being culturally responsive when connecting our communities?  If so, in what ways. 

Look forward to your responses.  Faafetai lava

    Thank you for the contributions.  I am enjoying reading them and find them very useful.  They fit very well with my research.  I loved Anthony's idea of the Pasifika performance before the parents' evening.  My research also supports your idea that students feel safer in small groups which is why they often are passive learners in a whole classroom situation.
