Report: Kapa Haka performance at Polyfest
Just before the end of Term 1, on Wednesday 5 April, the School’s Kapa Haka group competed at the ASB Polyfest at the Due Drop Events Centre in Manukau. The group have been practising since the start of the year in preparation for the competition, with all group members committed to practices after school and over many weekends to construct a performance bracket.
Form 6 student S. H. A. S. Peita ably led the group on stage with mana and contributed to the choreography and structure of all items. His commitment and contribution to the group’s performance were evident throughout the campaign.
The Kapa Haka group was happy with their performance and privileged to perform with many other outstanding rōpū from the rohe.
The group would like to acknowledge and thank the Rawiri whānau of Matua Doug Rawiri, Whāea Angela Rauhihi, Daetona Rawiri ’15 and Breize Rawiri for their unconditional support of the group, from tutoring the group to ensuring all students were well-fed during the many practices. The group are now looking forward to next year’s performance.
