Hato Heemi Matariki Celebrations

Thursday 23 June 2022

Dear Family/Whānau


Next Thursday 23 June, we invite our whole School Community to join with us to celebrate Matariki with a free Breakfast in the school hall from 8am. Bring along all your family/whānau.


The rising of the star cluster known as Matariki signals the Māori New Year and it will be a time for:

  • Remembrance – honouring those we have lost since the last rising of Matariki
  • Celebrating the present – gathering together to give thanks for what we have
  • Looking to the future – looking forward to the promise of a new year.


May God Bless you all.
