Each year at Hikuai we celebrate Matariki- the Maori new year. This year we split into our school houses and spent one block of the day in each classroom. We made a school korowai in Room 5, kites in Room 4 and weaved in Room 3. Matariki is about celebrating the culture and heritage of our nation and spending time together as a family. It's always a great day, we enjoy celebrating it and spending time together.
