Manawatia a Matariki

Last week, New Zealand as a nation marked the first public holiday for Matariki.  Matariki is a time to reflect on the past, celebrate with whanau and look forward to the future.

Kites have always played an important role in Māori culture, particularly during the winter season when they were flown to signify the start of Matariki, the Māori New Year.

Room 3 created some beautiful kites, and stars and enjoyed a yummy Kai, sausage sizzle to signify and acknowledge the celebration.
