To celebrate Matariki a group of staff, students and whanau met at 5.15am to walk up Maungawhau to look at the dawn sky. They were easily able to see the constellation. A group of us stayed behind with our Kaumatua to light the hangi fire. The hikoi then came back down to the whare to share kai for breakfast. This photograph is of the kai being removed from the hangi pit ready for sharing (our Principal, Lorraine Pound with Eloise Blackwell). We prepared over 200 meals. Our Kapa Haka roopu performed as we sat in the sun and ate. Students made Matariki stars.
