The annual Puni Multicultural Festival has been a highlight for the Franklin community for 11 years, from its early days at Puni School to the event it has become. This year’s naming rights went to Puni Motors Ltd on Waiuku Road.
“It is an amazing opportunity for schools and community groups to come together to perform on stage in front of a positive audience,” said Haydon Brill, Principal of Puni School.
This year the Multicultural Festival included 18 schools and 500 students.
Once again the sports events were a hit, as were the performances. “The event celebrates what is unique about Franklin and show cases some amazing talent both on the sports field and the stage,” Haydon said. “The Puni School community really pull together to make it happen, but without the support of the Auckland Council and the wider community, including our many sponsors, it would not be the event it is today.”
