Mr CE will share his experience of migrating from Samoa with his family at a young age and his pathway into care following serious physical violence at home.  Mr CE spent periods of time at Weymouth Boys’ Home, Hokio Beach School and Owairaka Boys’ Home where he experienced all forms of abuse. Samoan was Mr CE’s first language before he entered State care.  Following State care, he could no longer speak Samoan and will describe the impacts of the loss of his cultural identity.
