Explore with us some traditional activities undertaken by our ancestors during the Matariki season. In Hotunui, the meeting house, and in the wider Maori gallery spaces, we will explore the concept of whanau and community through storytelling, dance and/or handling specific taonga.
In the classroom, we discuss the origins of Matariki from a cultural and scientific perspective. Then we relate whanau and community to traditional food harvesting and resource sustainability.
Students will make something related to our overall theme to take away. This programme is assisted by LEOTC, funded by the Ministry of Education.
