HIGH SCHOOL PROGRAM SUITABLE FOR: YEARS 7 – 10
One team, one goal, one job, one love
Pacific Waves program aims to equip young people with the coping skills to navigate through life’s challenges as well as inspiring them to contribute to their community and pursue further education and careers.
This program has been designed to encourage Pacific young people to learn more about themselves: their personal strengths, cultural and family values so that they can improve their self-awareness, self-confidence and build positive relationships with their peers, family and teachers.
Led by highly trained Polynesian Facilitators, this program uses sport, art, food, performance, capacity building workshops and the local context to better understand one’s sense of self, and to demonstrate and celebrate culture and community.

The themes include:
- Term 1: Engage
- Term 2: Empower and Equip
- Term 3: Equip and Execute
