Asian Pacific Seed Congress


Back in March, Christchurch South Karamata Intermediate was approached by the Asia and Pacific Seed Association (APSA) and asked if our Kapa Haka group (Te Rōpu Harikoa) would come to support the opening annual Seed Congress. Of course, we said yes!

Since its inauguration in 1994 in Chiang Mai, Thailand, the annual event has been hosted in numerous key cities in the region, including New Delhi, Hyderabad, Bangalore, Brisbane, Shanghai, Bali, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, Ho Chi Minh City, Chiba, Seoul, Kobe, Macau, Kaohsiung, Manila, Pattaya, Ho Chi Minh City and Bangkok. This year it was hosted at Te Pae in Christchurch. The event saw delegates from around the world coming to New Zealand.

40 students from our Kapa Haka group got up really early on a long weekend Monday to come to town to perform. We also got the opportunity again to work with Ngāi Tūāhuriri with this event and represent not only our school but also Aotearoa New Zealand. A huge thank you to all the organisers from APSA for giving us this opportunity to perform on a grand stage and an even bigger thank you to the students who came to perform. You are the real legends.
