Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Miss T. Pasese

Follow up from Level 2 Pacific Studies - students will look at past, present and future issues of Pasefika communities in the islands and in New Zealand. It is a combination of cross curricular standards with a focus on Pasefika topics. We will be looking at aspects of Pacific indigenous knowledge, blackbirding in the Pacific islands and climate change in the Pacific islands.
