Our group finally has a name - Tae e Wha

We finally came up with a name for our Kapa Haka group. 'Tae e Wha' which simply translates to; many creeds, colours and cultures.  To honour the group, we composed a waiata that encapsulates our aspirations for them as learners.

It's a waiata about students striving for knowledge and taking every opportunity to enable themselves to gain further understanding in their educational pathways. It is inclusive of all cultures, thinking perspectives and understandings, acknowledging the diversity of the group. It also ties in with the Tawa Intermediate motto of engage, grow and inspire!


  1. The waiata sounds lovely - I like the meaning behind the name too.

    1. Kia ora Whaea. See you at Taiaha tomorrow night x
