ASB Polyfest

Blair Sorensen, John Taufa and Peseta Sam Lotu-Iiga

Unitec’s proud tradition of supporting ASB Polyfest continued this year with our sponsorship of the Unitec Diversity Stage and big presence at the four-day cultural event, held in early April.

The Diversity Stage runs for two of the four days, with A’anoalii Rowena Fuluifaga, Learning and Achievement Manager, sitting on the judging panel for the stage and UPC’s Anaru Parangi presenting the supreme award for the Unitec Diversity Stage winners.  Two of the UPC team, Blair Sorensen and John Taufa also held roles, MCing the stage over two days.

A space to relax

The UPC team also set up and staffed a stall aimed at connecting with the students, kura, schools, families and communities attending the popular festival. The Unitec space was an environment where people could connect, talk, relax, play games and enjoy themselves, doubling as a chance for the UPC team to continue the important work of building and maintaining meaningful relationships.

Andrea Thumath, Director Under-25 was proud of everyone’s efforts. “I Would like to acknowledge the collective efforts of Paul, Anaru, Debbie, Blair and John for bringing together the Unitec activation and Diversity Stage and role modelling Te Noho Kotahitanga in the way in which they work with our communities. Events of this size are exciting and unpredictable and require all of one’s energy and commitment – especially for the front line community faces of the institution. I am incredibly proud of the UPC whānau, and our extended whānau such as Paul, for all that continue to do to support our communities we serve.”
