Maraming salamat, kabayan! 🎉

Words aren't enough to explain how thankful our team is to everyone who played a part in this year's Fiesta! This event proved to be the biggest and boldest celebration in the events we had so far, and rightfully so, all thanks to everyone's input. 🥳🤗 Our team is forever proud to have organized something this BIG and BEAUTIFUL. Truly, our culture is exeptional and phenomenal in so many ways - and while most of you (us included) are unable to visit our country, in Fiesta we bring the aroma and flavours of the Philippines~🇵🇭🤍

Is Philippines on your bucket list yet? We sure hope so! 🇵🇭🇵🇭 Once again, we thank all of you, kabayan, for making Fiesta 2023 one for the books (and in the best book, really). We hope to see you on our Halo Halo Night for UCFilSoc's one last hurrah! 🥳

Our Story

The UC Balangay is a non-partisan, non-sectarian and non-profit organisation that is established to introduce and promote the Philippines -its eclectic culture, rich tradition, and diverse ethnicity - among the members of the UC community and the larger Canterbury region. It operates based on two key principles, namely, synergetic co-existence and diverse inclusiveness. Therefore, the UC Balangay welcomes both Filipino and non-Filipino members regardless of their preferred ideological philosophies; religious and moral aquisitions; and sexual orientations. The organisation has four main objectives:
1. Introduce, promote and propagate Philippine culture, tradition and ethnicity through its Filipino-themed events.
2. Provide informal academic support and assistance to members through its free (albeit limited) tutorial services.
3. Promote the University of Canterbury to prospective Filipino students living in New Zealand and in the Philippines.
4. Release official statements on significant issues affecting the university and its general student population.

Mission: To connect and engage Filipino students and other UC students through different social avenues that highlight the Filipino culture and open opportunities for expanding networks.

Vision: We envision building a strong Filipino community, support system and a sense of belongingness in campus.
