Subject Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs A. Jacques

Pasifika Studies integrates developing a student’s Pasifika language, critical thinking about different aspects of Pasifika culture(s) as well as performance and written and oral presentation skills. Samoan language, Tongan language and Cook Island language are university entrance subjects. There is the concept of a Pasifika Village with also the inclusion of Year 10 junior students for the full year. Students will be offered up to four language Achievement Standards (including two external exams) or Pacific Standards and one research/presentation standard. Dance standards are not directly part of the course but are situated here for those students who participate in the Polynesian dance group throughout the year. Students will choose up to 4 standards or 18 credits from this list.
