Vaiola and Mahe are putting together nearly two hours weekly of valuable health information for women and elders, of interviews with Tongan leaders, community notices, news and music plus lessons in Tongan as a first language. With a deep love of their culture and language the hosts offer a rich source of education and inspiration.
Produced by the Tongan Women's Association this show began in 1987 with the focus on Early Childhood Education. It has grown to include many Tongan community interests. The old and new mix of Tongan music is popular as are the education updates, health information, positive parenting segments, local and Canberra news bulletins. A short devotion opens each 2 hour programme.
Loto Ofa Whatu Manawa Educational Services aim to raise the achievements of Pasifika students through their heritage languages. Incorporating the values of discussion and long conversation with loving concern and connection, the programme covers current educational topics focusing on early childhood education. The show is not limited to entry level education and encourages community participation in teaching our kids.
