Congratulations to all our students, teachers and whaanau involved in Te Whakataetae Kapa Haka o Hauraki 2014  - you made us proud!

This year Thames South entered the Hauraki Festival in three separate sections; Junior (Primary School) - Te Roopu Matua o Hoterini ki te Tonga, Whakangahau (non-competitive) - Kotahitanga, and Intermediate (Secondary School) - Te Roopu Tuakana o Hoterini ki te Tonga. Our Roopu Matua was lead by Arie Dargaville Rehua and Mitchell Colwell-Taituha. For our efforts this year we were awarded with all of the following taonga:

1st Hauraki Junior Section, 1st Open Junior Section,1st Poi,1st= Waiata-a-ringa,1st Kaitaataki Kotiro - Open, 2nd Kaitaataki Kotiro - Hauraki,1st Kaitaataki Tama - Hauraki,1st Kakahu,1st Moteatea,1st Whakawaatea

We entered into the third division as a means of celebrating the skills our 6 Year 9 students. It was the first time for them and us as a kura. We had 5 days to put together a bracket consisting of 8 disciplines; waiata tira, whakaeke, moteatea, waiata-a-ringa, poi, whakawhiti, haka, whakawaatea. With a lot of hard work and determination, we took the stage and represented our whaanau well. We placed second in each discipline in the Hauraki section. Our kaitaataki kohine was Jurnee-Therez Murray, with Veronica Takotohiwi as kaitaataki kohine tuarua. Ngaa mihi nunui ki a raatou katoa ngaa kaihaka i tu i runga i te atamira. Ngaa mihi mahana ki ngaa kaiawhina, ngaa ringa wera, ngaa ringa raupa, ngaa kaitautoko katoa.

Turou Hawaiki!
