This year's Koanga Festival was held at Howick College and Cockle Bay School on Friday last week.

Kapa Haka groups from a number of local primary, intermediates and colleges performed on the day.

 

Our Kapa Haka performed extremely well in the afternoon. They made us very proud and were honoured by former students following their performance.

 

A special thanks to Whaea Carolyn Pou for her mentoring and performing with the group at the festival, Destiny Anderson and Dayalan Pillay for their expertise and coaching, and other Somerville staff and parents who attended and supported this wonderful cultural event.
