Windsor House took the win in the Haka Competition led by Head Boy Orlando Tuhega-Vaitupu.

Matu Pene —

With the most honed haka in recent years and all students giving 110% it was a difficult job for the judges, with first and second only being separated by one point.

King’s High School Term 2 finished with the much anticipated annual Haka Competition. Hanover, Stuart, Tudor and Windsor House all performed their Haka in the school quadrangle in front of judges; King’s Old Boy and te reo expert Keanu Ager, Isaac Hensman (Māori Dean), King’s High Kaiako Māori (Teacher) Matu Pene, and Rector, Mr McIvor. 

Guests including local primary schools lined the first floor balcony. He Waka Kōtuia and the teachers laid down the challenge with the first two haka and the stage was set. Windsor House took the win led by Head Boy Orlando Tuhega-Vaitupu. He then lead the whole school haka pictured above.  An exhilarating and exciting spectacle!
