ARTS & CULTURE
There are a number of performance opportunities available at Hawera High School in competitions and events in and outside the school. Several of our students have won regional competitions or scholarships like the Manu Korero and Malvina Major Music Scholarships. Some students are also fortunate enough to be members of groups that travel overseas like the Secondary Schools National Choir. Students can participate in the following activities and events:

Nau mai, Haere mai. Ko tenei te Kapa Haka Kimihia Te Rangimarie.
Hawera High School kapa haka plays an important role in school life, sharing Maori culture and leading powhiri on special occasions. Kimihia Te Rangimarie perform a variety of items including karakia, rakau, poi, waiata-a-ringa / tira / tawhito, haka. Aotea Regional Pae Rangatahi (Kapa Haka) is held bi-annually and hosted by Taranaki / Whanganui secondary schools.
Kapa Haka welcomes all students from Year 9 to Year 13 to participate. Kapa Haka fosters a whanau concept "Manaaki / Tiaki, tetahi ki tetahi" (care / support one another) to help develop confidence and self esteem within the students through performing arts.
