Te Maurea Whiritoi
Kapa Haka is a very popular Māori performing arts tradition.
It enhances the wairua (spirit) and encompasses a holistic learning approach. All levels of development of the body, mind, spiritual and social are encouraged through the art. Kapa Haka is now recognised as a worthy qualification and depending on the numbers, students can gain credits through this medium.
HBHS combines with HGHS as Te Maurea Whiritoi to provide a full Kapa Haka ropu. Students enjoy Kapa Haka on both a competitive and non-competitive level and many attend to enjoy positive interaction with others, establishing friendships and gaining valuable skills.
The Kapa Haka team always welcomes new members to the group. It is an activity which runs all year at the school.
