About Tuakaqu Mentors


Tuakaqu

Tuakaqu is the Fijian word for an elder sibling or big brother, or elder person that has the important responsibility to look after, care for or mentor the younger siblings.

In this sense all our Pacific students at the Faculty have the people of Pasifika Success as their Tuakaqu, who will mentor them to be successful. We are committed to encouraging and assisting Pacific students towards independent learning and confidence in their studies.
