Fiafia Practise

For the past 5 weeks of so the whole school have been attending Fiafia practises, this year is very important because its the 60th anniversary . I'm in Kapa Haka and my tutors are  Whaea Sophie and Whaea Raewen.  We mostly have practises on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays, in the library or either the hall. Normally we'll start at 2:00 pm and finish at 2:50 pm. 

 My group is mainly focusing on the 3 songs, the 2 hakas, and the actions. The main songs are Tena Ra Koutou and Piriponotia. Tena Ra Koutou will open us up and I think that Piriponotia will close us of at the ending of our performance.  Hopefully we learn all the items before performance night. 

The 2 hakas that we are doing involve the boys and girls. The girls Haka is quite hard, the Kaeas are Powai, Tyla Marie and Makarita. For the boys Haka Richard is the Kaea ( the person that leads them). So far I think that we need to listen a bit more to our Kaeas and Tutors. 

Sometimes I feel sorry for Whaea Sophie because we don't listen and watch on what she's doing. Hopefully my group pulls it off on the night so that we make Whaea Sophie proud of us and happy.

  1. Wow Jorja reading this reminds me about when I use to go to Pt England. And It looks like you are enjoying being in the Kapa Haka. I HOPE that on the actual night your group will pull themselves together and give your best shots.
