Matariki Day


Matariki day is when we celebrate the seven sisters that are up in the sky at night.We get together and play games around the fire and we eat marshmallows too. We sing Maori songs with guitars, pois and rauka’s.  

At Parkvale school we celebrated matariki day by doing workshops like poi making, carving, weaving and gardening.

We finishing  the day off with some Maori games like knuckle bones, hepe toe toe and hetamatutama with the Maori kahurangi dance company.
