Te Ao Maori and Pasifika

Ehara taku toa i te toa takitahi. My strength is not the strength of one. It is the strength of many.

Senior Kapa Haka 2019

Our Senior Kapa Haka crew is made up of tamariki from Years 4-8. Under the skillful guidance of our kaiako, Whaea Vikki Demant, our rōpū has developed into a professional, confident group of performers. Tamariki currently rehearse for one hour per week on a Tuesday morning. Our highlights this year include performing at…
  • Ngā Rau o te Kahu: Kapa Haka Festival at Ōrākei Marae
  • Financial Services Council & Workplace Savings NZ, Towards Wellbeing Conference at the Pullman Hotel
For more information about how to get your tamariki involved, please email Amy Thurston at athurston@stthomas.school.nz
