Culture

Cultural Groups

We are proud to have a range of cultural groups for our students to participate in, including:

Kapahaka

Samoan

Tongan

Cook Island

Bollywood

Chinese

Practices take place every Friday morning at school, with some after school practices in the lead up to Kelifest.

Kelifest

Kelifest ​ is a celebration of culture and diversity with our neighbouring schools, showcased in a festival that we hold here at Kelston intermediate.

We believe that being proud of who you are, your culture and where you come from play an important role in an individual’s learning.

At Kelifest we are able to showcase the cultural and creative talents of our students through the medium of creative arts.

We warmly invite you to attend with your whanau and experience Kelifest for yourselves.

Samoan Group Hawaii Tour 2019

Kelston Intermediate Samoan Group was honoured to be invited to the 2019 Hawai'i Kuauli Pacific & Asia Cultural Festival in Kona, Hawaii.

After months of practising and fundraising, 30 students were able to showcase their culture on a world stage. They performed at a variety of venues in Hawaii during their two week stay in May.

It was an incredible experience for everyone involved.
