This year our kura held it’s very first Matariki Celebration.
This year our kura held it’s very first Matariki Celebration. We started with a Hautapu, and continued with something special every day including visiting local kaumatua to brighten their day with waiata and kai hampers, then having a kura wide hangi. We did a rā hakinakina fundraiser for a young man from another kura to go to the world CrossFit championships and then we finished the week with a song and dance off with our Matariki bands and Matariki songs.
It was a crazy cool week that reaffirmed our tikanga in such a meaningful way. Can’t wait for next Matariki!
Ngā mihi o te tau hou Māori.
