Teina

The Teina, or Junior, group of Te Aho Paihere is for tamariki that are currently participating, or have recently participated, in a Manawa Enterprises Kapa Haka programme, and are keen to continue their learning journey through Te Aho Paihere. The programme is for tamariki Y6-Y9, with the Y9 tamariki making a transition to the tuakana roopu throughout the year.

The Teina will use kapa haka as their main medium, working on creating different brackets and exploring different components of kapa haka, while nurturing positive relationships with themselves and with others through wānanga.

Tuakana

The Tuakana roopu of Te Aho Paihere is focused more on the needs of the rangatahi and we start this programme at the end of Y9 of secondary school.

The Tuakana are actively involved with the Teina roopu, helping with tutoring, workshops or the work behind the scenes in the kitchen, cleaning or general behaviour.

The Tuakana roopu delve deeper into waiata, haka and performance while also learning through the art of theatre. Mahi Whakaari has become an area of interest among the tuakana and we have seen many positive benefits of telling our pūrākau through theatre not only including confidence and self-belief, but the language and perceptions of our tipuna through pūrākau.

The Tuakana roopu will continue to grow alongside the roopu and we will continue to develop the programme to suit the needs of the rangatahi and their whānau.

Ehara i te mahi māmā tēnei mahi! Ahakoa tērā, he nui ngā whaihua o tēnei tau mō Te Heretaura. Ko ngā mōrehu o tēnei mahi, ngā ringa tōhau nui o tēnei kaupapa, ko ngā tauira mō ngā teina- ahakoa, he tamaiti tonu. Koinei te ataahuatanga o Te Aho Paihere, me he tuakana, me he teina, he nui tō mahi, engari me he uaua- kei kōnei māua, mātou ko ngā mātua, ki te awhi i a koe kia tutuki pai tō mahi.

Ka noho poho kereru māua i ō koutou mahi i te tau nei, ahakoa ngā raru ki te kura, ki te aha rānei. I te haere tonu te mahi, kei te haere tonu inaianei, ka haere tonu hoki te mahi. Nei rā tā māua mihi ki a koutou.

Our most challenging project yet is the Te Heretaura project.  This involves training capable and committed tuakana, who are keen to share the workload, in tutoring kapa haka in their communities. Throughout our journey in teaching kapa haka, we have learned many lessons, made many mistakes and achieved much more than we ever expected.  With this insight we want to set up an easier pathway for our rangatahi to tutor, without as many obstacles, and somebody to guide them in their journey.
