We are the King’s of the Pacific. We are the performing group for the Pasifika Group in King’s. We perform both traditional and contemporary songs that tell the stories of the connection to our Pacific Islands that celebrate our ancestors and their deeds. We represent the values and hard work that have been instilled in us by our families.
There are numerous opportunities available for Pacific Island students to grow and learn both inside and outside the classroom. There is a homework group that meet after school every Wednesday in the Technology Department from 3-4pm. We have opportunities performing at ‘The Big Sing’, Pasifika Voice Competition and Polyfest, to name a few. During the year we have visits to Otago University and Otago Polytechnic where life after King's High School and future pathways can be explored.
At the core of this group is to ensure respect for ourselves and others is both maintained and enhanced, to grow a strong sense of responsibility in taking care of ourselves, family and others through the demonstration of our actions while always trying to have a laugh along the way.
