Owairaka Rocks at Eden/Albert Festival 2009

1 12 2009

The nervous Whanau opened our Eden/Albert festival with pride. The beautiful formations took over the large stage, amazing the stunned audience.

The awaiting audience, was wowed by the whakaeke(march on), David led his team with strength and with vigor. He demonstrated the skills of a true leader. Pekarau dazzled the crowds with her powerful karanga(call of welcome) as did Maria with her solo in ‘Ehara tenei…’  Item after item brought shivers to the multitudes watching.

Praises came from all different people from past teachers, to past students, present staff and school children. As a team they really celebrated ‘Wairaka our school tipuna’.

All cultural groups amazed the multitudes with their brilliant singing, dance and enthusiasm. Nga mihi mahana ki a koutou e whakangahau ana i te wa whakataa.

Our Owairaka students really shone on a fantastic day out for the family!
