Our school Kapahaka Group is called Nga Tamariki a te Atua, meaning Children of God.
Kapa haka is the term for Māori performing arts and literally means to form a line (kapa) and dance (haka). It involves an emotional and powerful combination of song and dance. Kapa haka is performed by cultural groups on marae, at schools, and during special events and festivals.
During a kapa haka performance, you’ll experience a range of compositions, from choral singing to graceful action songs and ferocious war dances.
Each Friday afternoon our Kapahaka group meets and practice. Our Kapahaka group also visits local Rest Homes and does a number of performances throughout the year. If your child is interested in joining our Kapahaka group and attends our school then come and talk to the School Principal.
