Cook Islands’ Group

Cook Islands’ Group Kia Orana tatou katoatoa. Every year, secondary school students in Auckland prepare themselves for the biggest cultural event of their life. This year it was on Saturday 18 March. Polyfest is huge, like the 'American Music Awards' and 'The Voice’, but from our tiny slice of Mangere College it is purely 'Polyfest Hard'. 2017 sure was 'Mangere College Year' at the Cook Islands Stage. After many hardout ‘tellings off’, we would like to say a big Meitaki Maata to all the people that helped us walk away with victory as the Cook Islands Stage Winners of Polyfest 2017. Meitaki Maata, for best Cook Islands teacher-in-charge, Tai Uamaki, our head tutors, Tai Temanu aka Mr Kua Kite and his wife Anna- Marie Taruia-Temanu, along with our many co-tutors, composers, costume team and cultural extraordinaires Jay Kaokao, Inangaro Tupuna, Niva Maroroa, Mama Kura Taruia, Pai Fatz Toru, Ben Toru, June Teara- Charlie, Sabel Tupuna, Valerie Taruia-Pora, Moetetau Temanu and Temanu Temanu Jnr, Tearetoa Tupuna, Keani Pora, Tiree Howarth, Agnes Daniel, Dante Daniel, Ganesh Takairangi, Maevarau Tuaputa; and Meitaki Maata to our many helpers, supporters and parents. Many good things come to those who believe. Better things come to those who are patient. The champions of this year, ASB Polyfest Champions and 1st Overall, give glory to our Mana Atua, our Heavenly Father who stood by our sides to guide us and grant us wisdom and grace us with the knowledge and strength of a Tumutoa Tama Kama Atu a Warrior and a Vaine Toa a Maiden Warrior. We are all honoured and very humbled by this great achievement and look forward to what 2018 will have in store for us. We now leave you with the final results that were achieved this year and hopefully we can do this again in 2018. - Meitaki Maata Te Atua Te Aroa Mangere College Cook Islands Polyfest Team 2017 22 Mangere College - 2017
