Dear Parents / Caregivers, We are pleased to share that our senior kapa haka roopu will be performing at the Ra Whakangahau festival on Friday 24th November at Waipuna Park, Welcome Bay. For those of you who are not familiar with this festival it is a celebration of school kapa haka for the Tauranga Moana area.
We will be performing at 11.15am and I have attached the performance schedule for your reference. We will get dressed and ready for our performance before leaving school at 9.30am. We require your support to help us get ready. A bus will transport us to and from the venue and we will be returning to school by 2.45pm. We do however require transport for a small group of children. Please indicate below if you are able to help us.
The students will need to take a packed lunch, drink bottle, jacket and sunhat. There will be food stalls at the festival and it would be acceptable if you would like to send your child with a small amount of money that they will be personally responsible for.
Please sign the permission form below and indicate if you are able to assist with supervision / dressing students or transport on the day. Return the form to Whaea Awhi in Room 25.
Hangi - if you would like to purchase a hangi for your lunch on the day you can pre-order on the Ra Whakangahau website before Tuesday 21 November at 2pm. www.rawhakangahau.weebly.com
