In November 2022, Ngā Puna o Waiōrea (NPoW) took part in the Auckland Secondary Schools’ Kapa Haka competition, known as Te Ahurea Tino Rangatiratanga, which was established in 1996 to showcase Māori cultural performances.
After a delay due to Covid restrictions, kapa haka groups from 19 schools in Tāmaki Makaurau/Auckland were welcomed to Westlake Boys High School on the 28th & 29th of October, attracting a huge crowd of more than 5000 people!
NPoW was awarded FIRST PLACE, which is a fantastic achievement for our kura!
Ngā mihi nui ki a koē to all of those involved in this kaupapa!
