Our Vision is for Pacific people of the Northern Beaches to have programs to assist in building awareness and improving access to local services, programs and activities.
Our Mission is to be of service to the local Pacific people living on the Northern Beaches by:
Creating linkages and building awareness of services and opportunities available to them.
Cultivating a sense of belonging by promoting and sharing the pacific culture with the broader local community
"The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members."
– Coretta Scott King1
Good news to start with.
Our Website is live now! Along with our Facebook Page; Pasifika Community Northern Beaches you can keep up to date with what is happening or contact the group directly. Lesley Browne contacted the organisation through the latter seeking assistance for starting the Samoan Language program, now more cultural learning will follow in the coming year. ‘Tofiga’ will be around again to check.
With funding assistance from Dee Why RSL we have received funds for 2019 events and projects. Thanks to the institution and acknowledging the assistance of both Sandra Faase (NBC) and Sandra Maloney (RSLDY) who made it possible. It is partnership in the best light giving the PCNB confidence.
For the coming year, a Discussion Group will be set up. Pasifika People need to keep up with the intellectual-conversion not for the mere fact that everyone is an intellectual but importantly to use for good purposes. PCNB will reach out to the Pasifika community at large to assist in the prospect of it getting off the ground soon and keeping it ongoing.
We also look forward to holding Pasifika Day in 2019 as well as our Active Pasifika Seniors program for the elderly members of our community, we hope to commence an Art/Storytelling program for Seniors once a week and regular group outings, perhaps more importantly to be able to capture their skills and experiences.
Pasifika Day brings out the Pasifika community in a celebration and sharing of the pacific culture with the broader community.
So, Let’s Talk while We Walk’! Join the Team and share what you can offer.
To the Team, Much Thanks. Wishing you the Blessings of the Season and a Bright New Year.
The Pasifika Community Family wish You All in the Northern Beaches a very Merry Christmas and a Great 2019.
