Kaitaia College

Kaitaia College received $1,825 to purchase 25 new tatua (male belt design) and 25 tipare (headband design) to complete the school’s new kapa haka uniforms.

The current uniforms are over 20 years old and having new attire will increase the students’ confidence and pride when performing at kapa haka events, festivals and community functions.

The team, Te Puawaitanga, is aspiring to qualify at this year’s regional kapa haka competition. Thanks to the grant from the Mazda Foundation they will look and feel the part.
