Ka pai Kapa Haka

Wairakei Primary School Kapa Haka group performed at the Children’s Day Event at Riverside Amphitheatre.  

What a fantastic effort the children put into their performance.  The students showed resilience as they all had to step up into lead roles and perform in front of a large crowd. On our final song, the students went into the audience and chose a person to join them on the stage to perform their last waiata. Even Harold the Life Education giraffe joined in with our performance.

Thanks to all the parents who made this possible by bringing children to the Children’s Day event.  We really appreciate your support.

Whaea Margo.

Giving up a Sunday is never easy and yet our Kapa Haka group willing gives up their Sunday to perform at Taupo Children’s day in the amphitheatre.

Two teachers, our tutor plus many students and caregivers came to perform for the crowd that had gathered. Our group presented five songs with actions and poi and undertook the haka showing off their skills and achievements.

Then following the instructions of Matua Grant went out into the crowd to bring back younger children and some willing mums and dad to take part in an action song. This delighted the crowd with many photos and videos being taken by the audience.

Thank you to Margo Clark and Marie Woolnough along with Matua Grant who gave up their time to get everyone ready. You all looked amazing in your uniforms. Paula Farquhar.
