Marist Primary

Each year Marist Primary is part of the Eden Albert Cultural Festival, giving children the opportunity to build confidence, character and stamina through the learning, creating, practicing and then performing for parents and the larger community.

The Mt Albert based primary received $239.40 to purchase poi for its students to use while performing to the local community.

The festival not only gives children the chance to share a piece of their own culture and that of their parents, but it is also a way for children within their own schools to participate in cultural performances from different countries, helping to build a strong community of understanding, appreciation and respect for the diverse range of people in Auckland.
