Children from 11 kura kaupapa, primary and intermediate schools around the Mid North took part in the Kaikohekohe Cultural Festival on Thursday. Now in its 22nd year, the event is a non-competitive celebration of Māori performing arts — with a few hip-hop dance and ukulele groups thrown in — and a chance to showcase tamariki talent. This year schools from as far away as Horeke and Paihia took part. More than 20 groups preformed during the day-long festival in the Kaikohe Memorial Hall.
