Glenbervie School has a close relationship with Pehiaweri Marae. There is a clear and shared understanding of Tikanga and Wairuatanga that leads the school in all it does. The rōopū has been mildly active over the years but had a resurgence in 2008. It is is founded on, and embraces the values of Manaakitanga, Rangatiratanga and Te Mahi Rehia. The roopu expresses the values and beliefs of the school and its community through haka, waiata, kanikani, poi, and rakau. Inspiration for the kapahaka comes from the children, the community, our past and our future. Without these elements, parts of our culture would die. We perform for the love of it and to keep our culture alive.
