Today we celebrated the start of Matariki, the Māori New Year, with a pōwhiri.  There were speeches, waiata, laughter, morning tea and lots of love.   Thank you to everyone who joined us and helped make our celebration so special.  Thank you to our lovely parents and whānau for the generous plates of delicious kai.  Thank you to Matiu Huki, our excellent kapahaka teacher for his guidance and support, to the teachers for organising the event, and most especially to our wonderful tamariki who welcomed and entertained everyone so enthusiastically.
