Swinburne Pasifika Association

The opportunity to unite students of Polynesian, Melanesian and Micronesian heritage.


Talofa lava, Malō e lelei, Ni sa bula vinaka, Kia orana, Taloha ni, Faka'alofa lahi atu, Kam na mauri, Gud de tru, Halo olgeta, and warm Pacific greetings!

A cultural based group is something that uniquely unites an amazing group of people. The Pasifika community is not as abundant in the tertiary education scene, therefore by establishing a club that embraces all the Pasifika cultures, it provides a safe and relatable space for our fellow peers of similar heritage.

Swinburne Pasifika Association (aka SPA) will provide a sense of home away from our homes and promote friendships that develop into a family bond. We seek academic excellence along with unbreakable support in all factors that affect our studies directly.

The club membership fee goes towards special events including sporting days and tournaments, movie nights, fiafia nights (dance and cultural performances - costumes, lighting, etc). SPA will be the community our Pasifika people can turn to while enjoying their University life and all the educational challenges that come with it.

Come say hello! Embrace our cultures with us! Enjoy the Swinburne experience!
