Tēna koutou, tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou katoa! Ngā mihi o te Tau Hou!

Kia ora whānau!

On Friday, 3 February 2017 we invited our tamariki to register their names if they were interested in joining either the Junior Kapa Haka or Senior Kapa Haka roopu this year.

We had an amazing turn out.  We are currently sitting at 90 students for the Y1-Y4 group and 70 students for our Y5-Y8 group.

As the school is currently making their way through the year group camps.  Therefore,  Kapa Haka will not be starting  for another couple of weeks. This will allow both Stacey Anderson and myself to organise the structure between the two roopu for the year.  We are also trying to accommodate the idea of tutoring 160 students at the same time between the hall and the Performing Arts room on a Thursday afternoon between 1:30 and 3:00pm each week.

PLEASE ensure you become a follower of this blog to keep up to date with our busy year.  >>>>>
