Māori Celebration Evening

23 March 2016

It was fantastic to see so many whānau supporting our students at our annual Po Whakanui (Māori Celebration Evening) which was held last night in the whare nui. This event was a great opportunity for our community to see students performing in the kapa haka group and to celebrate student achievement. It was a great night, thanks to all who attended for making this event so successful!

Our Kapa Haka team showed their intrinsic talent at Polyfest 2016. They performed Whakaeke (Entrance), Mōteatea ( Traditional chant), Waiata-ā-ringa (Action song), Poi, Haka and Whakawātea (Exit) and came out 8th overall.
