Family Fun Day Performance



Kia ora whanau,

We are going to be performing at the PTA Family Fun Day next Saturday November 11th.
We will be performing at the start of the event, so all kapa haka children need to be at Room 22 by 10.00am to get ready before the event kicks off at 11.00am. 

As this is an informal event and we won't be on a stage, we are able to have the juniors and seniors performing together.   Boys will need to wear small black shorts, and girls will need to have their hair tied back neatly in a ponytail.

It's going to be a super fun day and we look forward to seeing you there.
For more information on the event, please check the school website and Facebook page.  

Ngā mihi nui,

Mrs Madden

Koanga Festival 2017

Tino pai tamariki ma! The Koanga Festival was a huge success, and that is all down to your hard work and commitment during the year.  It was clear that you had all put in time practising your performance at home and there was lots of very favourable feedback for our polished performance and beautiful singing voices. A huge kia ora to all of our whanau who came along to support their tamariki and provide help on the day with getting us all ready for our performance.  Ka nui te koa i to koutou maia ki te tautoko ki te kapa haka!

Ngā mihi nui

Koanga Festival

Kia ora e te whanau,

Koanga Festival is fast approaching. This year the festival will be held on Saturday 2nd September at Somerville Intermediate in Howick.   Pakuranga Heights will be performing at 1.30pm.
This means that students will need to arrive at our school at 11.30am to get into uniform and have their ta moko applied. 

Once we are finished getting ready we will make our way to Somerville Intermediate.  We would like to have all students there by 12pm.   You will need to drive your child from Pakuranga Heights school to the intermediate, then collect them after the performance. 

If you have any queries about the event, or if you know that your child is unable to attend due to a prior commitment, please email Mrs Madden on carolm@pakurangaheights.school.nz.

We look forward to seeing you all there.
