"During the brainstorm phase, there was an explosion of creativity, imagination and storytelling happening. We then took our kids into the recording studio so they can have a go at narrating their own stories. This space can be quite daunting, but over time, the kids became very familiar with the recording process and took real ownership of their performance. Now that all these elements have been put together and tested, the Pasifika Stories series is  ready to be shared."

Zohar and Saul Luamanuvae-Su'a, Tino e Tasi Pre-school

Pasifika Stories

This is a treasury of short stories written, illustrated and told by pre-schoolers.

The Pasifika Stories series is the second generation of Pasifika language apps by the tamaiti of Tino e Tasi Preschool.

With the support of the Toloa Community Fund, offered by the Ministry for Pacific Peoples, tamaiti produced these apps from conception through to delivery.

This journey provided an opportunity to celebrate their own ideas around their identity, language and culture and share stories that are familiar, meaningful and authentic.
