Pasifika Welcome Day
Pasifika Welcome Day 2021
Date: 27th February 2021
Time: 10:30am - 1:30pm
Venue: Engineering Core, University of Canterbury
To celebrate the start of a new academic year, a Pasifika welcome is held every year on Saturday at the end of the first week of lectures, bringing together all first-year and returning Pacific students and their families. It is a great opportunity for students and family members to hear from key University staff and meet members of the wider Pacific community.
The day opens with a warm welcome by the University and includes student speakers, special presentations and ends with a Pacific buffet lunch. All students, first-year and returning, are invited to attend with their family.
