Project name: Pūrākau
Project information: Our project is called Pūrākau. Working with our creative, we aim to explore stories, or Pūrākau, that exist in our Ākonga’s whakapapa then bring them to life through the performance arts (drama, dance, and music). As a school of all Māori wāhine, this project seeks to acknowledge the importance of knowing and understanding whakapapa in order to achieve self-awareness.
Project starting: March 2021
