Northern Outlook - - HEALTH AND WELLBEING - EMMA DANGER­FIELD

The North Can­ter­bury kapa haka cel­e­bra­tion, Ka¯ Matakura o Ru­atani­wha, is com­ing up at the end of the month, hosted by Tuahiwi School in the Ohoka Sports and Events Cen­tre.

The event will run over two days, Wed­nes­day Septem­ber 27 and Thurs­day Septem­ber 28, and will see 22 lo­cal schools take part, in­clud­ing the new Haeata Com­mu­nity Col­lege.

Two day­time ses­sions will be held both days, start­ing at 10.30am, as well as one evening ses­sion on Thurs­day which starts at 5pm.

There will be door sales for the day­time per­for­mances, how­ever the evening ses­sion will be by ticket sales only, with tick­ets avail­able from par­tic­i­pat­ing schools for $5 each.

Or­gan­iser Sue McKay said the event had been go­ing for more than 10 years, and had grown over that time with more and more schools com­ing on board as par­tic­i­pants. This year would see the largest num­ber of par­tic­i­pat­ing schools, she said.

For more in­for­ma­tion, call Sue McKay at the Tuahiwi School of­fice on 03 313 8521.
