Matariki Celebrations

In celebration of our first Matariki public holiday, MHJC had a week full of fun and exciting activities to commemorate the different reasons of celebrating Matariki.
 
For Māori, Matariki signals the beginning of the Māori New Year and signifies a time to gather, reflect and remember those who are no longer with us, celebrate the present, and plan for the future.
 
The week started off with tree planting, quizzes were also organised, as was story telling/sharing in the library with the support of an art exhibition. The week ended with kite flying and traditional Māori games, and finished by coming together as a whānau while watching our Kapa Haka students perform.
 
Mānawatia a Matariki!
