Pasifika voices conference 2012 graphic

Pasifika Voices: speak up, speak out, speak loud was the title of the New Zealand Post Primary Teachers' Association / Te Wehengarua (PPTA) Pasifika Conference 2012.

The theme for our fono spoke to the intrinsic value of self and group expression and identity and to the need for all members of our society to voice issues, discuss solutions, be heard, and participate - in education, employment, community.
