Ko taku reo taku ohooho. Ko taku reo taku mapihi mauria.

My language is my awakening. My language is the window to my soul.

Kapa Haka

Poipoia te kākano kia puawai Nurture the seed and it will blossom

At Haeata Community Campus, our goals in Kapa Haka are to develop a school-wide connection and celebrate our students and their learning through kapa haka. We do this by creating learning stories, allowing ākonga the opportunity to lead and enjoy kapa haka when they come.

Kapa Haka ā-kura has seen a massive growth in leadership and engagement over this year through building connections and positive relationships with kaupapa Māori. Our senior student leaders consistently support us throughout the term helping with setting up, facilitating, leading and growing our ākonga.
