Fiafia night

Fiafia was awesome!. The big night was on the 18th of april 2013 60th birthday for point england school. 6:00 pm the students had to get dressed and 7:15 pm had the opening pray one in tongan and one in Maori  I was in the Kapa haka group and the Kapa haka was the first item. Getting changed was fun I liked watching the girls getting their Moko's. Walking up the steps onto the stage outside because we couldn't do it in the assembly hall because it was too small. When the I done the haka I got stage fright. But when we done a song with the junior Kapa haka I couldn't sing properly. But it was fun I can't wait for the next Fiafia.

Hi my name is Brandon and I’m in Kapa Haka for Fiafia. Fiafia is something Pt England School does every two years. We are doing this because it is the School’s 60th anniversary. There are a mixture of groups, and the students get to say their  top 3 choices. They will be going to one of those groups. Most of the time people go to their first choice, but not everyone gets their first selection.

The tutors for Kapa Haka, my group, are Whaea Sophie and for the junior Kapa Haka Miss Tito and Miss Wild. Whaea Sophie taught us all a maori song that she wrote. I like the boy’s haka that  Whaea Sophie wrote.

I like the costume, because the boys are going to get moko’s and the girls are going to get piupius. Another thing I like about Kapa Haka is that I am Maori and that is my culture. I can’t wait until the night.

Fiafia starts at 7.00pm Thursday the 18th of April, and dinner is from 4.30 to 6.30 pm. See you there!
