Kapa haka Group

Our Kapa haka is a well established Maori Performing Arts group.

The Kapa haka group is led by Mrs Anna Kenny and Mrs Pinepine Tora.

In Term 1 we welcome all students to come to practises, this is so they can get a chance to experience performing. It also allows them a chance to make a commitment to the group in Term 2. Students range from Year 7 to Year 13 and are all committed to the principals of Manaaki Orewa.

Performances

The Kapa haka group performs several times over the year

  • Nga powhiri, at the beginning of the school year and to our sister school Hosei during the year.
  • Kaipara Festival
  • Tu Maia Festival
  • Opening the International Festival
  • School assemblies
  • Maatariki Week

Practises

These are held on a Friday in Period 2 in the Orewa Arts and Event Centre.

Fees

There is a small charge per student which is payable when they make their commitment in Term 2.
