‘WORD – The Front Line’ is an inter-high school spoken word poetry competition held every year. This year’s team from Ngā Puna o Waiōrea had an excellent performance at the semi-finals against six other teams and were one of three teams that made it through to the finals. They’ll be joined by three other teams from a previous semi-final on Saturday the 16th of September at Aotea Centre.
Congratulations to Milan Moala, Billy McCarthy , Piremina Ngapera and Koromiko-Jacob Williams. They are joined in this photo by their mentor Arihia Hall with their mentor who is an ex Waiorea student (bottom left of the photo). Thanks must also go to Whaea Alice, and Matua Rewa for their support of the team.
