Due to the current Covid Omicron outbreak and Aotearoa being in the Covid Protection Framework Red setting for an unknown period of time, Waka Ama NZ has made the very difficult decision to cancel the 2022 Secondary School Waka Ama Nationals.

It is not possible to safely run the event under the Covid Protection Framework red setting rules while ensuring the health and safety of our rangatahi, kaiako and kaimahi. We are also mindful that kura who attend the event come from throughout Aotearoa, we do not want our event to be the cause for further spread of the Covid-19 virus to small and remote communities across Aotearoa.

We would like to thank Te Waiariki Purea Trust for all their work so far in the organisation of this year’s event.

If you have any questions relating to the cancellation of the event, please do not hesitate to contact us at schools@wakaama.co.nz
We look forward to seeing you all at the 2023 Secondary School Waka Ama Nationals.
