We have an awesome Kapa Haka roopu that work throughout each year to learn waiata and haka to share and perform for others. This is lead by our Kaiako Susan Uffindell, Sally Shroff and Sam Marks. We meet every Monday morning tea after eating time to play games, learn waiata and to tautoko each other. Over the year we work to build our waiata knowledge and always look forward to participating in one of the local Kapa Haka Festivals and performing for whanau and friends at our end of year assembly. Being involved in Kapa Haka is increasingly popular among our students and both Maori and non-Maori students alike, enjoy the opportunity to participate.
Kapa Haka takes commitment from everyone involved and we work hard together as a whanau but we still have lots of fun! It is a great opportunity for our tamariki to build confidence and leadership while also learning to show respect and work together as a team.
If you have any questions about Kapa Haka please pop along for a chat after our Monday practice or come and see one of the Kaiako.
