Event descriptions


Aganu'u: My Cultural Space 2018

This programme has been specifically designed for Year 12 and Year 13 students of Pacific Descent to encourage and normalise Pacific success, self-determination and cultural knowledge in their learning spaces.  The cultural workshops are led by Pacific staff at Massey University and it encourages each student to participate in discussions centred around cultural values and beliefs on historical teachings and learnings and how they are relevant in nurturing positive change among their peers, with their family and wider community. These learnings not only locates the Pacific young person in their cultural context but brings awareness to concepts that encourage resiliency, collective responsibility, service as a means to leadership and an cultural identity that can be translated and viewed as success

Kia Ora Hauora Symposium

This is an event run alongside the Northland, Auckland and Waitemata DHB to promote both the Sciences at a tertiary level and Health Pathways for rangatahi Māori. The final day of a 3 Day Symposium for Years 11 – 13 will be held here at Massey University.
