Children are the precious offspring of their parents. When we uplift our children, the melodies they can create are beautiful. Watch 8 year old Hope and her father Liuafi sing together to celebrate Samoan language week. Make it to the end to hear Hope's beautiful solo. With nurturing guidance from parents, our children will flourish.
Tune in to our Fathers Fono series - launching tomorrow across our social media platforms.

Our Pacific Culture is a unique make up of our values, beliefs and behaviours and is seen in our vibrant and colourful dances, food, languages, song, and traditional practices. Though there are hundreds of diverse Islands spanning the Pacific Ocean there are common values that tie us together like faith, love, respect, service, and family. With that in mind Pasifika Fathers are the cornerstone of family ensuring such values are reflected in their relationship with their wife/partner as well as their children. Our role as Father is to guide and protect our family through actively engaging in the lives of our children and building strong and resilient relationships with them. In this way it is hoped that challenges can be navigated and our children grow into thriving and flourishing Pasifika People.

The phrase for today is "Ou te alofa ia te oe" which simply ... means "I love you" remind your family and friends by telling them you love them in Samoan. It's the small things that count!

โ€œA malu i fale, e malu i fafoโ€ which can translate to โ€œProtection for families, protection for... allโ€.

Scholarships Programme update

There is a delay in our assessment process due to the current nationwide health situation. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work towards the final stages of application results. We will be in touch as soon as we can.

 

#CatchYourself

As we navigate between the alert levels for Covid-19, many of us may be experiencing worry, frustration, irritability or anger. Le Va, with ACC, developed an educational #CatchYourself programme to help us maintain respectful relationships during these uncertain times.

 

Supporting safe tattooing

Le Va supports and honours the tradition of tatau and promotes safe and healthy tattooing so that we can maintain cultural traditions. Following an inaugural Ta Tatau Health and Safety Workshop, we’ve put some resources together to encourage healthy and safe customary tattooing.
