Action on the oval

The performance from Te Kapa Haka o Ngāti Whakaue was a crowd-pleaser following their success at Te Matatini, a significant cultural festival and the pinnacle event for Māori performing arts held every two years.

In March, we were privileged to have been a part of the Ngāti Whakaue Whānau Day, a special day that unfolded on the Scion oval. A highlight was hearing Te Matatini co-runner-up Te Kapa Haka o Ngāti Whakaue. Their performance and waiata inside Te Whare Nui o Tuteata were truly breathtaking.

It was wonderful for the whole community to celebrate with whānau and recognise the partnership between Scion and the tangata whenua, Ngā Hapū e Toru.

Whānau and organisations enjoyed connecting in the relaxed setting.
