Matariki Week

This year ended our Matariki Week celebrations with an Idenitity Day.  Across the week the children have been learning about the importance of Matariki (Maori New Year).  Our Kapa Haka group performed to the school, the children took part in a Pukana competition.  The children also dressed up on Friday to share with others what makes them the special person they are.
