Scott | Matariki 2023

This year I have enjoyed getting into the Matariki spirit of things as a teacher at Rata Street School. We have done some artwork, read stories about Matariki and learned some of the related reo. Many Whānau also attended the evening celebrations at school that included all manner of activities, maybe the most popular with the tamariki was the spinning of fire staffs which some of the ako even got to try out (with very close supervision). Next on my list of Matariki fun is a special dinner and some star gazing to find the Sisters in the early morning sky.
