Pakuranga College hosted its annual celebration of cultural diversity in a colourful explosion of music and dance on Thursday August 5.

Cultural Night is an eagerly anticipated and heavily highlighted event on the school calendar as students are responsible for their choreography, music and costumes. It has been running for more than 10 years and is always sold out.

Performances ranged from K-pop and Japanese taiko drumming to traditional dances from the Cook Islands, Tonga and Samoa. Each group practised for months beforehand.

The atmosphere was electric as they performed in front of a packed house and an additional 200 friends and family on live stream, many of whom were situated outside New Zealand.
