Embracing Matariki

For the last few weeks we have been learning about the Matariki.  We read stories, learned about harvest tikanga, weaving and planting food.  Some students experienced harakeke karakia for our weaving beautifully lead by Whaea Trina. We’ve had Whaea Petula and Whaea Marlene supporting weaving. We even had a former NWS school teaching the children to weave Matariki flower. Today we celebrated Matarki with a shared kai. Happy Matariki to all Kiwis from Room 18.
