Living Heritage website publishes information regarding a collaborative project between Tongan students of Marcellin College in New Zealand and students from Takuilau College in Lapaha. Both family and religious links bind the two schools together.

Accordingly,

"Many of our Marcellin College students have relatives who live in Lapaha, and who were students at Takuilau College. Both Takuilau College and Marcellin College are Catholic Schools which were founded by Marist Brothers."

"In the Tongan communities in both Lapaha and Auckland tapa is highly valued. The aim of this project is to record this tapa making tradition. It focuses not only on the process of how tapa is made, but also on its meaning and how it is used and valued."
