What the community has to say about us

"Need to go back. Made some awesome friends and we did a play that inspired my husband to join which meant I had to stay back and be with the kids lol highly recommended"
Leafa Luatua
"I started the Fa'amatai class in 2018, not long after I received my matai title. I don't have the language, but I have grown up around fa'aSamoa and seen all the ritual and ceremony. Tauanu'u and Lemoa were amazing tutors! I finally got the answers to all my questions over the years asking my mum 'what are they saying' or 'why are they doing that?'. Even as a native language speaker, she didn't understand the Samoan oratory language. My best advice is to come and give it a go...you'll be pleasantly surprised at how much you learn, and you'll gain the confidence to start speaking the language yourself."
Tuiloma Gayle Lafaiali'i
"Excellent staff overall and education delivered A+. Thanks PEC"
