Haka a Pt England

This Haka was written by Thomas Strickland (Brother of Sophie - Tokorima Aperahama's wife)


E nga maramara o te kura e tu (LEADER - a student, teacher, parent etc)

All who support this school, rise


He taua  (LEADER)

It is a war party


He taua

It is a war party


Kei aku hoa pumau

to my dear friends


E whakaeke mai ra ki te mura o te ahi

Who are about to ascend the battle field


Ki te taumata tiketike

to attain the highest level


Nei ra te apakura e mihi matakuikui

Salutations


Ki nga raukura a Ruapotaka

For you are an adornment of Ruapotaka (or Tamaki)


Tu mai, tu mai ra

Be counted


Whaia (LEADER)

Strive


te pae tawhiti

For excellence


Whaia (LEADER)

Strive


Kia tata, whakamaua, kia tina

And it will happen, we concur


Haumi e, Hui e (LEADER)

Tiaki e

Be ready to progress.
