About Us » Kapa Haka
Me Mahi tahi, tatou me takaro tahi tatou.
Let us work together - let us play together. Mackenzie College offers the opportunity for students to become members of the college kapahaka. The group rehearses regularly and performs at specific events in the community.
Our powhiri (welcome) is unique to Mackenzie in that it includes the bag pipes, thus acknowledging the Scottish settlers in the district.
The sense of pride and belonging the students have for their college is evident in their performances of the waiata and the school haka. The kapahaka group is 99% non-Maori.
