I have been talking about the Kapa Haka Regionals for the past couple of weeks with C1 and what the competition entails. I was lucky to be able to watch all of the Schools: Horo Horo, Rotorua Primary, Te Kura Kaupapa O Te Koutu, Rotorua Intermediate, Te Kura Kaupapa Maori O Hurungaterangi, Kaitao Intermediate, Mokoia Intermediate, Te Kura Kaupapa Maori O Rotoiti/Whangamarino, Western Heights Primary School and Te Wharekura O Ngati Rongomai.
It was an awesome day, with such awesome talent on show. I was very lucky to be there when the winner of the competition was announced. I hope that in two years time at the next Regionals, Glenholme School will be up on that stage as well, I can just picture it now!!!
