Te Ahorangi

Kia Ora Whanau 

These beautiful Tauira from Yr1, Yr2 and Yr3 have come along and joined our Junior Kapahaka Roopu for 2016.

They had their first Haka practice with Whaea Paddy on Rapare in the Wharefono.
 Starting first and foremost with Maori Tikanga and Kaupapa our babies did their
Himene-Wairua Tapu followed by their School Karakia-E te Kaihanga to open their Haka Session.
Aue....Tino Ataahua Koutou

They then practiced some warm up techniques and games to get everyone relaxed and ready for learning, there were smiles and katakata all over the Wharefono...

 after all the was Wa Ako (learning time)

Our Beautiful Pepe got straight into learning a new Kapahaka Waiata.
Can't wait for our next Hui with these Miharo Tamariki Ma!!!

Ka Mau Te Wehi Te Ahorangi!!!
