Polyfest has re­ceived a con­sid­er­able boost with the Gov­ern­ment ded­i­cat­ing $200,000 over three years to the cul­tural event. The an­nual Auck­land sec­ondary schools’ Pa­cific cul­tural fes­ti­val at­tracts about 9000 stu­dents and up to 100,000 spec­ta­tors each year. Pa­cific Peo­ples’ Min­is­ter Pe­seta Sam Lotu-Iiga says it gives fam­i­lies and young peo­ple the chance to come to­gether and share their cul­tural her­itage through song, speech and dance. Polyfest will cel­e­brate its 40th An­niver­sary at the Manukau Sports Bowl from March 18 to 21.
