Last Saturday, we took our school kapa haka group to the Kapa Haka regionals for Auckland region to represent our Kelston community where we were fortunate enough to place 13th of 28 groups.

Te Pou Herenga Waka was represented by a few students, namely Taylor Strachan, Ayziah Wilson, Aries greening, Tumua’I Eki, Junaid Chand, Stacey Saussey, Gwendolynne Turner-Pako, Chelson Richies and Jasmine Smith-McNamara.

As the teacher of te Pou Herenga waka, and 1 of 5 tutors for our Kapa Haka group, I am super proud of the efforts your children put in this year, from being respectful of Maori culture and the tutors who tirelessly worked on promoting their talent, being responsible by coming to practices all year long and being engaged enough to learn and love the art of Kapa Haka.

Tena koutou nga taiohi o Te Kapa Onewherowhero, ano hoki ki nga whanau whanui o Te Kura takawaenga o Kerehana.
