E oho hui

This footage was taken during the first hui/meeting of all the Manaiakalani Schools held at Pt England School, Auckland, NZ.

In March 2015 a very special event is happening right here at Pt England Beach. We are lucky enough for the Hikinalia Waka, which is part of the Mālama Hōnua Voyage, to sail into Ukutoia (Maori name for Pt England area).

As part of this amazing event The Principals from the 12 Manaiakalani Cluster of Schools, decided that a special Waiata or Haka be written specifically for welcoming the Hikianalia crew and passengers.

Our Kapa Haka tutor Patrick Gemmell wrote this Waiata Tira for this occasion.  You can click here for more information (translation) about this special song. Here's our first practise together.
