With help from Stand Youth Worker in Seconday Schools services, funding and advocacy, students at Dargaville High School are now wearing Tupenu / Sulu va tonga/ Le Faitaga as part of their school uniform for both informal and formal use.
The school had included this as their part of new uniform going into 2018, but had yet to source the required garments.
YWiSS services enabled students to find a supplier, get the required garments approved, order them, and start wearing them to school. This created a diverse uniform option that has become popular for both Polynesian and non Polynesian students.
Way to go Karla!
