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

    Talofa Lava to you all :) It is truly inspiring to read through these comments and know that there are other educators out there who are on the same page. Majority of the points mentioned, are really helpful and do encourage myself to kick start something, at my school. Please continue to share your thoughts on other initiatives and successful approaches from your own experiences or those of people you know. As mentioned earlier, this is an area which i am extremely passionate about, as im sure you are also, and i enjoy reading and learning from you with your expertise. As a third year teacher, i am still learning alot about the system and how to best cater for our Pasifika communities. I would be more than happy and truly greatful to set up a time to meet with anyone who can share their thoughts and ideas. Fa'afetai Lava!
