Matariki Festival

Wednesday the 2nd of July the Pt England Kapa haka students were invited to participate in the Matariki festival. Which was held at the AMI Netball courts. Workshops and the Ki-ora-hai tournament was also held at the AMI Netball courts. Schools from around Panmure and GI also
attended this festival.

There is a Maori Whakapapa that we should mostly always start off with a Powhiri (special welcome or Greeting). So we did!. After the Powhiri the schools went out to start their experience. We went out making bracelets made out of Flax which was really Kool.

The second activity we attended was making Koauau (A Maori flute). Exciting and fun it was we even got to keep it. I myself can’t play one but practice takes time. The Matariki Festival was so exciting and amazing I hope we get the opportunity to do it again.
