What is Kapa haka?
Kapa haka is the term for Māori performing arts. It is an opportunity for people to express and showcase Maori heritage and culture through song and dance.
Banks Avenue School Kapa haka Group
We always have a large number of members in our Kapa haka group who work extremely hard to prepare for the Cultural festival, school performances and special occasions such as Mihi Whakatau. Our Kapa haka group has performed at the Palms, school fairs and Cultural Festivals in the past and we are all looking forward to our performances coming up this year.
We practise every week on Wednesday from 11:45am till 12:30pm with our inspiring tutor Maaka Kahukuranui.
