Kapa Haka gave a stunning performance at the ASB Polyfest on Friday 16 March. The group has been practicing since the start of the year under the expert guidance of their tutors. Well done to all involved, you made us feel very proud.

Ata Houpapa from the University of Auckland spoke with akonga about scholarships, career pathways and played games in te reo Māori at Te Ringa Awhina Marae.
Students were invited to learn the school haka, attend mau rākau workshops (lead by two specialist tutors from Te Whare Ahorangi, Rotorua) and waiata. Staff participated in a morning quiz and had the opportunity to enjoy a delicious hangi, steam pudding with custard, watercress salad and fried bread lunch on Friday.
Whaea Leauga would like to acknowledge all of the kaiako, akonga and whanau who helped make this event a great success.
Ka nui te mihi ki nga kaiako o te ra ko Whaea Rau raua ko Matua Ue.
Mauri Mahi Mauri Ora.
Whakanuitia te wiki o te reo Māori!
