Kia orana, Talofa lava, Malo e lelei, Fakalofalahi atu, Taloha Ni, Nisa bula vinaka and warm Pacific greetings everyone.

St Mary’s Pasifika Parent Asosi is a group that aids the school, teachers and parents to enable our young Pasifika women to discover their true potential and embrace the opportunities for a successful future. 

The Asosi is made up of parents of our Pasifika students who help support our girls by liaising between the parents, the school, and the Board of Trustees on issues, concerns and initiatives. 

We promote the welfare of our girls and help cultivate a Pasifika identity at the school.  We do this by promoting understanding, strengthening and maintaining the identities, languages and cultures of our Pasifika girls and their families.   

The Parent Asosi believe that when teachers, parents and families are engaged in our children's learning journey, they are allowed to succeed in school.

We are so excited to begin another year and hope you will join us in our efforts to promote Pasifika culture, engagement, and community building. 

If this is your first year at St Mary's College, the Asosi extends a very warm welcome to you and your family.

The Asosi has several ongoing events in 2024.  We will require assistance from Parents (in whatever capacity) to help with these events.  Your involvement will be fun, rewarding and fulfilling. If you think you can assist or want to help in some way, then contact us (details below)

If you are not able to join, that is ok!  We will provide updates on the activities and events through our Facebook pages and via email.   

If you haven’t joined our Facebook group, click on the link below and use the ‘Join Group’ button in the Asosi main menu to send a request, and one of our admin team will confirm your request. 

Other school media platforms - School Newsletter, School Calendar (SMC website) and you’ll get text reminders. 

The Committee believe that, for our daughters to succeed we need to work together as a Pasifika community to help them grow.  The Committee are here to assist you in helping your daughter be successful at the school, if you encounter difficulties or struggle dealing with the school, we are here to help.  We are a group of Pasifika parents who want the best, not only for our own daughter/s but for your daughters as well.  

We would love to see and hear from you and welcome you to be informed, connect, and get involved as and when you are able.
