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.”

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
