Tena koutou e hoa,

This year we're going to have a senior girls poi group. So far we've made our poi and learnt our first song. Watch this space for when we start performing :)

Summerland Kapa Haka 2017

Kapa Haka this year is lead by the amazing and talented Mrs Landon with the assistance of Whaea Heke. We practise weekly and love any chance we get to perform at assembly and at the Powhiri each term (a welcome to new students and families to Summerland).

What we're learning

Last week we had a kapa haka sleepover. We practised our songs and then we did some group activities. They were things like filling in a whakapapa tree, a maori vocab challenge, and buddy reading with Maori books.

Then we had food which was pizza, hotdogs and chips. We also got to have juice and icecream.

We put our pyjamas on and set up our beds. Of course we brushed our teeth too!

We watched a movie which was Finding Nemo and then we all fell asleep.

In the morning we had a yummy breakfast and played on the playground.

When our parents came to pick us up, we did a performance of all of our Kapa Haka songs.
