Powerful Performance @ New Brighton Library

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!

    I agree Charliebean, I was at that performance and it was heartwarming to see the number of parents and whanau cheering for their tamariki, and others just enjoying the buzz. Is one week long enough for māori Language Week?

    You have a point there, a week is not long to get practicing…
