Pasifika at Shirley Boys' High School
Fakaalofa lahi atu, Malo e lelei, Bula vinaka, Halo olaketa, Taloha ni, Mauri, Namaste, Kia orana, Ia orana, Kia ora!
Talofa lava, Malo le soifua manuia ma le lagi e mamā,
Fa’afetai i le alofa o le Atua ua taitai’ina mai ai lo outou soifua ma so’ou ola vaivai, ua mafia ona tatou aulia mai ai lenei tausaga.
Talofa, Talofa, Talofa lava.
At Shirley Boys’ High School we strive to provide an educational environment for young men of Pasifika heritage, which is integrated into the core philosophies of Shirley Boys’ High School.
As our school continues to create a safe environment that allows Pasifika students to be Pasifika, it is vital that we improve our practices to suit their diverse backgrounds.
We have three goals with regards to Pasifika learners at Shirley Boys’ High School
- Increase the academic achievement of Pasifika learners by supporting both staff, in their teaching practice, and students, in their learning.
- Advance meaningful connections between the school and Pasifika families and communities.
- Improve the social engagement of Pasifika learners, both in and beyond the school, for example, through leadership and citizenship.
Over the last couple of years, we have developed a Māori and Pasifika Development team, with several staff having responsibility for this important area of the school. Their contact details can be found below.
