Kāpiti College reprised ‘Parihaka’ for two nights on March 4 and 5, 2020, in our new performing arts centre, Te Raukura ki Kāpiti.

Kia Aio Te Noho kapa haka rōpū

Our rangatahi are incredible kapa haka performers, directors, actors, artists, musicians and singers, who make you cry and leave you breathless in the best kinds of ways.
