2020 EVENT THEME

 

“Healing the body, mind, spirit and soul

with the strength of Culture”

Bula, 你好 - Nǐ hǎo, Selamat, こんにちは - Kon’nichiwa,  नमस्ते - Namaste, Kamusta, สวัสดี - Sà-wàt-dee, Tashi Delek,, 안녕하세요 - Annyeong, Goeie dag, ሰላም። - Sälam,  Ẹ n lẹ, Naqaa, Xin chào, Selam, Talofa, Сайн байна уу - Sain baina uu, السلام عليكم - As-salām 'alaykum,

 

Greetings to you all, 

 

The Diversity Stage brings people from many different cultures together, to learn from and about one another. This festival is for people to identify with their culture and how it relates to all areas of their wellbeing. This knowledge leads into our festival theme “Healing the body, mind, spirit and soul

with the strength of Culture”

In 2019, we had 84 groups entered to compete on the Diversity stage. It is exciting to see the stage continue to grow and new cultures and new schools taking part. Maybe this year we might see a Scottish Highland Fling, or an Argentinian Tango!

 

We are thrilled to have Aorere College hosting the Diversity Stage and look forward to working alongside them to make 2020 an amazing celebration of cultures! This will be their final year hosting and we are looking for a new school to host in 2021. 

 

We would like to acknowledge the support and encouragement from our wonderful sponsors Unitec.

 

We would like to thank all School Coordinators, Senior Leadership, Teachers, Tutors, Families and Performers for their hard work. These efforts nurture our youth and enable them to grow in their cultural knowledge. 

 

We look forward to celebrating another year with you all in 2020.

 

Warm regards,

 

Ranee Prasad and Sarah Woods

 

 

STAGE MEETINGS

Stage meeting 1 - Thursday 14th November 2019

Stage meeting 2 - Thursday 13th February 2020

Both meetings will be held at 4.30pm, Aorere College, Portage Rd, Papatoetoe, Auckland 2025


TICKETING INFO

Please submit a fully completed profile sheet for each of your school groups. Only once all profile sheets have been submitted will the full ticketing pack be prepared, so it is important you check that all groups are accounted for before arranging to collect your pack.  

We are lucky to be working with iTicket again this year. It has enabled us to make some time-saving changes to how these packs are made up.

  • In the week 9-13 March, an E-PASS for the Performance groups will be emailed directly to the Cultural Group Coordinator (CGC). This ONE e-pass is to be downloaded as a PDF and forwarded to the relevant TICs for each group.

  • ONE E-Pass, you're wondering? Don't worry, I got you!                             

           Within this e-pass are names and details of all the groups the school has
           registered for, including the Total Number of the group noted on the
           Profile Sheets. You may print this or save it on your electronic device.

  • The TIC will show this pass at the gate and one of our Gate team will scan the pass and count through the number in each group as they enter. There will be a Prepaid queue at each gate for the Group to enter through.

  • VEHICLE passes will be sent in a separate email to the CGC. 

​However, we do still need the CGC to pick up the BUS and Media passes as well as any other important information that will need to be shared with all the groups. It is important that you are available to collect from either location on either day, as packs will not be sent via post or courier.
