Papakowhai School participated in the Kapo Kapo festival last week to celebrate Matariki. It was a great night. Here is some of the feedback we received.
The event was amazing and I was so proud of our school for all the hard work that was put in to make our performance one of the best. What a wonderful school that can all join together and put in so much work to achieve such high praise. It is a school that I am proud to be a part of. Finally I would like to say well done to all the children involved that put so much into the performance. You could see that they were all 100 % committed and were giving it their all.
Just a quick note to say how wonderful it was to be a Papakowhai parent last night! The kids looked so polished and poised and performed so well given their short time together. It's been really cool for my daughter to have something she can connect to culturally and she's thoroughly enjoyed it.
I just wanted to say how fantastic the Kapa Haka group was last night. You would never know that Papakowhai hadn't had a group in 7 years. Well done. Wouldn't it be great if the rest of the school could see it at the end of term assembly? Well done again. I loved watching them.
My granddaughter was one of the Papakowhai School children who really enjoyed the experience of performing last night. I think that they presented a very polished performance. For all of the children it is another of the memorable experiences of being part of a group, and learning new skills and building self-confidence. It is really appreciated!
Just wanted to say that I was so proud of the school tonight at the Kapo Kapo, what a great performance by our young ones. You would never have known that they hadn't performed together before, it was just fantastic. Thanks for all the work you put into making this happen, and please pass on my thanks to our tutors.
