Kapa Haka helps to grow values

1 min read

(Source | Waatea News) The tutor of the top Auckland secondary school kapa haka group says the Maori performing arts are a great way to get students motivated for the rest of their education.

Te Kura Kaupapa o Hoani Waititi in west Auckland fought its way back into the top spot at the four-day Polyfest, pushing last year’s winner Western Springs College into second.

Te Hira Paenga says the students are now back on their academic track, but they’re feeling great.

All our kids are talented in kapa haka. It is not even about pulling out those talents, It is about pulling out the morals and values we have in a positive way our kids are able to latch on to, he says.

Te Hira Paenga says while only a lucky few can make a career out of kapa haka, taking part gives them a good grounding for other parts of their lives.
