Niu Wave journey underway for 2024 Toloa students

Le Va’s Niu Wave programme was created and designed for Pasifika students to go through a journey that will teach them how to take care of their overall wellbeing as they study.

Our Niu Wave team leads the youth wellbeing programme for all recipients of the Ministry for Pacific Peoples’ Toloa Secondary School Scholarships.

Niu Wave information session for Toloa scholars

In May, the team kicked off the programme with their first online meeting of the year for the 2024 Toloa cohort.

The information session was a chance for students to connect with Le Va, meet the Niu Wave team and learn about our partnership with the Ministry for Pacific Peoples.

As part of the Niu Wave programme, students will learn about topics like cultural identity, mental health, respectful relationships, spirituality and leadership.

Each student will be matched with a Niu Wave mentor who will guide them through the programme, answer questions and address any concerns.

Wellbeing workshops held throughout the year are designed to enhance students’ overall wellbeing and facilitate their learning.

This is all delivered within a village-style setting, where students will meet other Pasifika youth from their region and join a digital village chat group online.

Congratulations to all the successful 2024 Toloa students – exciting times are ahead for you all and we are so happy to be part of your Niu Wave wellbeing journey!
