Kapahaka—champions in our eyes

Today our Kapahaka group performed at the Te Whakataetae Kapa Haka Kura Tuatahi. They were amongst the best—an analogy I heard was the All Blacks v Paraguay. We were Paraguay. But boy—were we good or what??!! It was such a thrill to see our young roopu on that stage singing  their hearts out, giving their all to do tremendous justice to the waiata, mōteatea, haka and poi. Their costumes were stunning and they radiated heart and mana.

I was incredibly proud of these tamariki today. They did our school, their parents and iwi, and themselves proud. Matua Vai, Whaea Mel, Margaret and all those who helped them prepare—a huge thank you from me and our school for showcasing us as strong, polished performers.
