Rowley School Kapa Haka Performance 2018

Remember I said at practice there was a school that sung their waiata with passion, standing shoulder to shoulder. This is the video. Check it out.

Words to Karangatia Rā

Words to our waiata Karangatia Rā.
The first verse has actions and the second verse will be sung standing side by side (with passion!)

Karangatia rā    x2 Pōwhiritia rā     

Ngā iwi ō te motu
Ki tēnei marae
Haere mai
He hui aroha
Mō koutou e ngā iwi
Nau nei te aroha
Me te mamae

Nau mai e ngā iwi
Haere mai
Me ngā taonga
O ngā tūpuna
Whakahuiaa rā i tēnei wā
Haere mai x2
Tiroatu ra ki waho e
Ngā waka e hoe atu rā
E tangi nei te aroha
Ki a koutou

Kua wehe atu nei

Our Senior Performance Kapa Haka Rōpū

Monday, January 14, 2019


This year it would be great to hear from the students about who they are and where they come from.
All students (Senior Performance Group) will be encouraged to give their Mihimihi over the course of the year. Those younger students in our other rōpū will be asked and given time if they would like to share, but many may like to share in the smaller setting of their own classroom. 

Students are welcome to use the format here, adding or removing lines as needed, or their own.

Tēnā Koutou Katoa,

Ko ________ tōku maunga  (Mountain)

Ko ________ tōku awa  (River)

Ko ________ tōku waka  (Canoe)

Ko ________ tōku iwi (Tribe)

Ko ________ tōku marae

Nō ________ ahau  (where you are from)

Kei ________ tōku kainga ināianei  (where you live now)

Ko ________ tōku kura (Don't forget we are Parkview Pārua now!!)

Ko _________ tōku whānau  (Family)

Ko _________ tōku matua (Father)  

Ko _________ tōku whāea (Mother)

Ko _________ tōku ingoa (your name)

Nō reira, tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou katoa.

Remember if this format doesn't fit you then don't hesitate to talk to Mrs Lindley or your home room teacher. It's never a one size fits all.

Kapa Haka 2019

Nau mai, Haere Mai! Welcome back to Kapa Haka 2019. 

This year the majority of students at Parkview Pārua will have an opportunity to be exposed to Kapa Haka, whether it's in their own class, their team or in our Senior Performance Group.
Sessions are run by myself (Victoria Lindley and Matua Rihari).

This blog will be used to relay messages/notices and put up photos/videos of each rōpū.
