Hato Pirihiti (St Brigid’s) Kapa Haka

We have the privilege of having two Kapa Haka groups,  our junior – teina group (Years 1-4) led
by Nanaia Martin  and our senior – tuakana group (Years 5-8) led by Tania Fransen with the much
appreciated tutoring and support of Parehuia Tutua-Nathan.During Terms 2 and 3, the groups meet
in the school library every Thursday with a key focus of working towards performing at the annual
Newlands School’s and St Brigid’s Kapa Haka Festivals.

Here is a snapshot of our performance at the recent St Brigid’s Kapa Haka Festival held at Newlands College.
