2021 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 2021 an amazing celebration of cultures! This will be their final year hosting and we are looking for a new school to host in 2022. 

 

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 2021.

 

Warm regards,

 

Ranee Prasad and Sarah Woods

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 have the wonderful iTicket team working with us again. This has enabled us to make some time-saving changes with the way we make up your packs.

  • From Thursday 8th April, we will begin sending out your electronic passes.

  • 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.

  • What's in this E-PASS? The E-PASS will have the 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 cultural group will enter with the TIC who will show this e-pass at the gate.  One of our Gate team will scan the pass, check off the group entering and count through the number specified for that group as they enter. Please ensure all members are present before entering as we are not able to rescan these passes for the group. 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 with details of which group has ordered these.

PLEASE REMEMBER that the CGC is responsible for picking up 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.

PACIFIC SPEECH COMPETITION PASSES

Niue, Samoa and Tonga

Like previous years, the Pacific Speech Competition is a free event for competitors, but for contact tracing purposes, free ticket passes will be issued to each competitor with 5 free supporter passes. Tickets can only be used by the registered student's school consisting of one teacher and four students who must be in full school uniform. These will only be valid for the day the student is competing in the Pacific Speech Competition.

  • These passes will also come in the form of an E-PASS and will be emailed separately to the CGC.

  • There will be one E-PASS, comprising of six passes in each one, per competitor.

  • Please forward this E-PASS to the TIC accompanying the speech competitor and up to four students who can attend as supporters.
