In November last year, more than 7,000 school children in Wairarapa took part in a record-breaking haka, 'Ko Wairarapa', written 30 years ago by Paora Ammunson (Te Arawa, Rangitane and Ngati Kahungunu) when he returned to his turangawaewae. Paora is a South Wairarapa District Councillor, he helped set up Wairarapa's first PHO, chairs the Wairarapa Rugby Union, and is involved in community sport and development.
