Thousands of school children from the Pacific participated at Polyfest last week.
Polyfest is four days of the best in Pacific culture, with music, food and on-stage competition.
The annual four-day celebration of Polynesian culture has attracted more visitors than ever this year.
Among the 242 performing groups is one who’s come to New Zealand from a Rarotongan high school for the very first time.
On Friday, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern became the first Labour Prime Minister to attend Polyfest.
“We will be a nation where one-in-five in the future will be Maori or Pasifika – that is who we are,” she said.
