As part of our Tamaki Intermediate Haka Waiata Festival 2008 our students had to perform five acts in total that represented some of the different cultures at Tamaki Intermediate School. This act is the Girls Indian Group from Calliope House (Red - hence the uniforms). The students were taught this traditional Indian Dance by one of the Calliope House Teachers who was Mrs Sigamoney. They practised themsevles leading up to the competition. Regular followers of this site may recognise some of the students in this act! Filmed during the festival by Victor on Friday 5th December 2008 at Tamaki Intermediate School Hall.
Students in New Zealand have another two weeks of holidays before the end of our summer holidays with students back in early February in most places. A reminder that this site is being maintained as a static site - new posts (2009) relating to the work of the teacher will be posted on our new site opening in a couple of weeks. Thanks for your visit.
