Our Waiatatia group had the pleasure of performing at the InterCouncil Sports Day held at the Events Centre on the weekend. The sports day is an annual social event for all councils around NZ who wish to attend. This year (for the first time), the event was held in the South Island.
This performance was probably one of our best yet. Not only were we well rehearsed and ready to perform, but the crowd was also very appreciative of our efforts and felt the need to cheer us on and sing along with us too.
This was also our first opportunity to perform our new waiata-a-ringa (action song) Ko te Waipounamu, which I thought, as an unbiased observer, we totally hit out of the park.
After a debrief at Joe’s Garage, which is becoming a regular after performance spot, we all headed home buzzing from a great night out.
