We're Proud of our Reefton Area School Kapahaka group!

Korbyn, a Year 2 from B4, is a member of our school 
kapahaka group. 
With the help of coast iwi, community members and some teachers, the students have trained hard to learn 
haka, poi and waiata ringa ringa (action songs).
The boys have even given their time some weekends to learn some haka.

Recently the group took part in the Tai Poutini Kapahaka Festival in Westport.

Leave a positive message for our kapahaka group telling them what you enjoyed about their performance.


  1. Hi Koryan
    We really enjoyed the Kapa Haka performance, it was amazing! How long did it take you to learn all of the songs? Why did you choose to do Kapa Haka? Could anyone join the group? from Saul and Meisha Kitto
