Hinepau Show

On Tuesday we were fortunate to have the Hinepau production come to school. It was a show about the Maori legend, Hinepau, which highlighted the importance  of looking after Papatuanuku and celebrating differences. The show was entirely in Te Reo which was a first for many of us, but we got the concept of the story from the amazing actors, captivating waiata, and stunning costumes and props. Very cool show!


  1. Hello Room 5 we are Room 13 from KawaKawa Primary School. We thought the show was fantastic as well. We really liked the costumes especially the woven fish. We think we should have been familiar with story and read the book before watching the show so we had a better idea of what was going on. The actors were amazing.

  2. Kia ora Room 5,
    How lucky were you to have the Hinepau show at school. The costumes look stunning! Where did the actors come from? Are they Tai Tokerau based actors?

  3. Hi there my name is Hadia, from Owairaka District School.
    I really like the photos that you took and from the pictures I could tell it must have been an amazing show. It reminded me of when we have different cultures people to our school and they also tell us stories.
