### Kapahaka - Merit post 3

On Friday it was the first kapahaka session for 2017. We all took our shoes off and waited in the foyer for cultural club to finish than we entered the hall. First Mr Brown talked to us about what's happening throughout the year. Than we split so that the people that wanted to be in the performance group were on one side of the hall and the people that wanted to be in the nonperformance group were on the other side.
After that Mrs Baker and Mr Brown put us into lines I am in the second row in the middle. Then we sang taitapu and ka waiata so Mrs Baker, Mr Brown and Matua Rihari could see how we sound as a group.
I showed the care value of excellence by trying my best when singing tai tapu and ka waiata.
