Kapa Haka 2017

Kia ora!

The senior children of Parkvale School performed at the Hawke's Bay Kapa Haka Festival after three terms of dedicated practice with Whaea Mali, Whaea Lani, Matua Anaru, Mrs Miller, Miss Jackett and Mr Cooper. Our groups looks stunning!! You can hear the crowds enjoyment through these two performances.



A massive thank you to Whaea Mali, Whaea Lani, and Matua Anaru for helping our tamariki put together such an awesome display.
