Kapa Haka

Room 9 and 15 had a great time at Kapa Haka today with Mr. Chadwick. We are learning the stick song (tī rakau) E papa Waiari.

Here are the lyrics if you want to practice:

E papā Waiari,
Taku nei mahi
Taku nei mahi,
He tuku roimata

Ē aue, ka mate au;
E hine hoki mai rā
Ē aue, ka mate au;
E hine hoki mai rā

Māku e kaute
Ō hīkoitanga
Māku e kaute
Ō hīkoitanga
