Celebrating Tongan Language Week

Sep 12, 2021

This week was Tongan Language Week – Uike Kātoanga’i ‘o e Lea Faka-Tonga. The theme for 2020 is “Fakakoloa ‘o Aotearoa ‘aki ‘a e Lotu Mo’oni”. “Enriching Aotearoa New Zealand through Prayer and Faith”.

At PARS we are fortunate to have Tongan staff members, Soi Vehikite, Corporate Service Co-ordinator and Lavinia Faleofa, Navigator. On Friday, Soi and Lavinia treated the PARS team! They put on a Tongan feast, explaining what we were eating, taught us about their culture via a fun quiz, then performed a Tongan dance.

We thank you Soi and Lavinia for the learning and for sharing your precious Tongan taonga with us all.
