This annual event, which has replaced the Parklands Gala, celebrates the cultural diversity which is the hallmark of our school. We are a true multicultural, international school which is well-regarded for its strong Maori identity personified by its wonderful Whanau unit, unique in the district, just having celebrated its 20th anniversary. The following short (amateur) videoclips show some of the evening's activities.

Many students, dressed in their national costumes and participated in the flag parade down the main street.
