Fanau Pasifika is the Centre for Pasifika Education within Kia Aroha College. Fanau Pasifika opened originally as Clover Park Intermediate School in 1981. Clover Park officially changed its status in 1995 from a two-year Intermediate school to a four year Middle School, catering for Years 7 to 10. In 2011 Clover Park merged with Te Whānau o Tupuranga to become Kia Aroha College.
Kia Aroha College is the only secondary school in the country offering bilingual (dual medium) learning right through to Year 13. Fanau Pasifika offers bilingual learning in Samoan/English, and Tongan/English from Year 7 to Year 13, including NCEA standards in these languages. Learning bilingually is part of our special character. Students of all ethnicities are very welcome to enrol in any of our bilingual programmes. All students cover the full New Zealand Curriculum and excellence in English is expected.
