The Fono was held at the Holiday Inn Auckland Airport, 2 Ascot Road, Mangere, Auckland.

Talanoa for Pasifika Success will bring educators together to tell their stories and to discuss a range of issues that are important to and affect Pasifika peoples, Pasifika students and Pasifika education in New Zealand.

The programme included inspiring speakers, a Pasifika Youth panel and a range of workshops.

The theme Talanoa for Pasifika Success embraced the values of inclusiveness, collectivism and acceptance of all who wished to participate.

Talanoa also encourages debate – we do not have to agree with a person’s point of view and are welcome to question it. However, we must also listen to others and allow everyone to share their thoughts on a matter.

The aim was to continue the work of our previous Pasifika fono; Voyaging the Future, The Niu Generation, Pasifika Voices and Lalaga: making connections.

It is through Talanoa, robust debate and the sharing of ideas that we hope more successful stories will be written for our Pasifika students.
