Celebrating Matariki 2022
Friday, 24 June 2022
The day started at 5.30am with a karanga and karakia, we then had a shared parakuihi/breakfast followed by guest speaker - Johnnie Freeland who had a korero on Matariki.
We had a rongoā workshop with mirimiri for those who wished to recalibrate themselves and we also had a raranga workshop making flowers. Others went into the whenua for some whakato rakau/planting.
