Te Reo Māori me ōna tikanga

At our school we value the teaching of Māori language and traditions. Because of this we are supported by a Central Otago REAP representative, Whaea Mary-Anne. She works weekly with teachers and students to improve their use of the Māori language and understandings of all things Māori.

Kapa Haka

Our school kapa haka group is made up of a selection of committed Year 3-6's.

We practice every week and have a number of regular performances throughout the year.

Our yearly highlight is travelling down to Invercargill, participating in the Murihiku Polyfest and staying overnight at Murihiku Marae.
