NCY is our high school aged youth group. We meet regularly on Thursday nights (6:30-8:30pm) during the school terms. We have loads of fun activities in store for anyone who comes to hang out at youth, which includes bonfires, camps, car rallies, and a whole lot of other fun activities!
Kapa haka is an important avenue for Mãori to express and showcase their heritage and culture through waiata and haka. It is a fantastic vehicle for sustaining and developing Mãori language and culture. As Northcity is committed to a bicultural journey with tangata whenua, a kapa haka group has an integral part to play.
Kapa haka teaches Māori tikanga such as pōwhiri, karakia and whaikõrero. It can also teach Mãori social values and manners such as whanaungatanga, manaakitanga and aroha, along with life skills such as commitment and discipline, writing and composing ability, and memory strengthening.
We meet every few weeks on a Friday around 7pm.
