Maori and Pasifika Awards Night 2018
On Thursday evening we celebrated the successes of our Māori and Pasifika rangitahi at our annual awards evening. Academic, Sporting and Cultural achievements were recognised, along with leadership potential and service to our Kura.
The evening was a huge success and included performances by members of Aiga and the Polyfest group who showcased a variety of cultural dances. Along with this, our Māori Performing Arts class and Te Whānau o te Whatukura o Papanui took to the stage displaying immense talent, emotion and support for one another. It was great to acknowledge the hard work and dedication required to succeed at such a high level in these performing arts.
Another highlight of the evening was the performance from the Papanui High School staff band ‘Kumara and the Vines’, this included an impromptu performance from our Kaumatua, Matua Te Haere Stirling.
A huge thank you to all that supported the evening.
