Check out the 2015 Kapa Haka Performance of Te Roopu o Peowhairangi. Bay of Islands College, in the Kawakawa Valley, caters for students in Years 9 to 13. The majority of students at the school are Māori, who affiliate largely with Ngāti Hine and fifteen other hapū. There is a strong history of Māori community presence and support for the school. This strong connection has enhanced Māori students’ pride in their language, culture and identity, and has reinforced for students the importance of learning and achieving.
