Matariki Challenge

Every year in Aotearoa New Zealand during the mid-winter, Matariki rises in the eastern sky in the early morning just before the sun. Its appearance in the sky at this time was traditionally celebrated as the beginning of the Māori New Year, and people would gather to celebrate, feast, and share in each other’s company.

As part of our school vision of celebrating diversity, we have the Matariki Challenge for you to find out more about Matariki. Go on to the Matariki Workspace and complete the activities. Each activity is worth a set amount of stars. Collecting 9 stars means you can get it ticked off your Aim High.

Any pātai, see Mr Barr.
