Tenei te mihi kia koutou

(Greetings to you all)

 

Somerville are proud to offer every student the opportunity to be part of the kapa haka group, where they will learn the skills and tikanga (maori values, attitudes and behaviour) of the Maori performing arts.

 

They will learn the art of poi haka ti rakau (short stick) mau rakau (long stick) waiata-a-ringa (action songs) and be involved with powhiri (traditional Maori welcome).

 

Students will also get the opportunity to showcase the skills they have learnt for different events we have on our school calendar.

Nau mai, haere mai
