Kapahaka group performances are a wonderful way to achieve so many things. Watching Central New Brighton School’s kapahaka performance yesterday at New Brighton Library, I was reminded of how important it is for children to perform in a supportive environment.
The kaiako – teachers – brought out the best of the group of over 5o children and the tauira – students – had a great time performing to the maximum of their abilities. There were newbies and oldies but the way everyone performed together was encouraging to see and a pleasure to hear. They always bring out those goosebumps!
