Kapa haka

The Waitaha Primary Schools Kapa Haka Competitions 2009 was held Saturday 31st October at the Aurora Centre, Burnside High School, Christchurch. It was an action packed day full of primary and intermediate school-aged children, singing and performing their hearts out!

Eight schools competed; six in the competitive section and two in the entertainment section. Top honours were taken out by Te Kura Whakapūmau i te Reo Tūturu ki Waitaha, second place to Te Kura Kaupapa Māori o Te Whānau Tahi and third place awarded to Shirley Intermediate School.
