    Fakalofa lahi atu, Kia orana, Nisa Bula Vinaka, Talofa lava, Malo e lelei and welcome to our PB Pasifika Stratus page. 

    At PNBHS we offer a a range of activities, academic support  and mentoring for all of our Pasifika students.  These activities include social, cultural and sporting activities in which our students can participate. In particular, our PB Pasifika Club practices singing and performance for choir and cultural performances. As a result, our group participates in a variety of school and community events such as the local Big Sing Regionals and Pasifika Fusion Festival.

    The Pasifika Fusion festival encourages our students to submit work in other categories, such as Science Projects, Essay Writing, Speeches, Visual Arts and Drama Skits. All submissions relate to a theme of the festival for that year.  In recent years it has been very pleasing to note the increase in entries made in the academic categories.

    For academic support in school, we offer students a Homework Centre where they are able to access computers and the internet after school for research and completing assignments and homework. During the year, we hold a study skills workshop on offer to help students organise and prioritise their assessments. These are initiatives put in place to support our students with academic achievement.

    We also offer our younger Pasifika students a mentoring program.  This helps our boys set goals in terms of what they want to achieve while they are at PNBHS and beyond. In the senior school we encourage our young men to enrol in the Barrowclough Award program.  The Barrowclough Award assists young men to develop their leadership skills and helps to ensure they are better placed for selection as team and group captains, as mentors for junior students, and for consideration for the role of school Prefect.

    Check out the talent of our Pasifika Club here at our school this year. Some positive results achieved, and came 3rd Overall. This was the first time our club has had a placing in the Top 3 for this festival.

        Warm Pasifika Greetings to all our Pasifika Families and communities

        As Term 3 continues to be busy and rolling through, our Pasifika cohort continues to work hard and aim high to achieve well in both academic and co-curricular involvements. 

        For our Seniors, it is a busy time for them to prepare for the upcoming practice examinations in the end of Week 8. These begin on Friday 15th September and continue on the following week, ending on Friday 22nd September.  To assist your son in preparation for these examinations, take time to discuss with him times and days of his examinations. As it is a stressful time for him, continue to be there to support and ensure he eats well!

        Our juniors have also continued to settle into the PNBHS Way. For some, it may have been a struggle at first but have overall been resilient and now know that hard work reaps the positive rewards.
