New Haka

We are now learning a new haka. Actions to come soon!

Performance preparation

Today the junior and senior performance groups worked together focusing on performance etiquette - such as smiling, not fidgeting, breathing at the right time, using good volume. We are already looking forward to next term and the Manaia View festival.

Visit to Jane Mander Retirement Village

On Wednesday 1 August the Junior and Senior kapa haka performance groups went to Jane Mander to showcase their talents. The residents of Jane Mander were very welcoming and thrilled by the children performances.

Big thanks to Matua Shane for working so hard with the children. They were a real credit to Hurupaki School.
