Stu­dents per­form in Hawaiian cen­tre

South Waikato News - - NEWS/SPORT -

Some For­est View High School stu­dents have re­turned from a whirl­wind trip to Hawaii.

The school’s Poly­ne­sian cul­ture group Po­line­tia Fa’atasi, in­cludes 42 stu­dents who spent four nights at Waikiki where they shared their tal­ents with lo­cal peo­ple.

While there they vis­ited Pear Har­bour’s Ari­zona Me­mo­rial and per­formed at the Poly­ne­sian Cul­ture Cen­tre in Laie.

Ac­cord­ing to For­est View teacher Jade Beale the group had looked for­ward to work­ing with Nonosina, a renowned Tahitian per­form­ing arts group, which has two former Toko­roa res­i­dents in their ranks.

‘‘ It is an ex­pe­ri­ence that our stu­dents will not for­get; it is about en­cour­ag­ing them to aim high and know­ing that hard work and de­ter­mi­na­tion can take you any­where you want to go,’’ Miss Beale said.

Amongst the tal­ented trav­ellers was Lu­ciana Diaz, the school’s year 12 Amer­i­can Field Ser­vice ex­change stu­dent from Ar­gentina who had not imag­ined get­ting to Hawaii when she ar­rived ear­lier this year.
