Welcome to the Performing Arts page where you will find information and news from our Kapa Haka group, Samoan Group, Tongan Group, School Choir, Ukulele Group, Hip Hop dancers and J-Rock.
This term we are participating in a variety of experiences to help us learn Our Father and a new hymn called Te Atua in Te Reo Māori.
E to mātou Matua i te rangi,
Kia whakatapua tōu ingoa,
Kia tae mai tōu rangatiratanga,
Kia whakaritea tōu hiahia i te whenua
Kia pera anō i tō te rangi.
Homai ki a mātou āianei he taro mā mātou mō tēnei rā.
Whakakāhoretia o mātou hara, me mātou e whakakore nei i ngā hara o te hunga e hara ana ki a mātou.
Kaua mātou e tukua kia whakawaia,
Engari whakaorangia matou i te kino.
Our Father who art heaven.
Hallowed be thy name,
thy kingdom come,
thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread and.
Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.
Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. Amen.
On Tuesday 14th August our Year 5 & 6 choir competed in the Kids Sing Competition for Primary and Intermediate schools.
Congratulations to our Year 5 & 6 choir for winning a silver award! Here are some pictures from the night.
Kia ora e te whānau,
Do you have a desire to be cool to kōrero, or at least would like to have a basic understanding of Te Reo Māori me ōna tikanga. This is a new programme in a very relaxed environment for beginners or novice learners of Te Reo Māori. We will cover a range of aspects from greetings, farewells, how to introduce yourself as well as touching on some key marae values, concepts, practices and customised content to meet your requirements.
Meets Monday, 630 – 830pm, Quality Education Services, 10 Norman Spencer Dr, Papatoetoe, Auckland 2104
Nau mai, haere mai. All are welcome.
Noho ora mai
