Matariki is a special time for for friends and family to come together to remember and think about the past, celebrate the present and prepare for the future. This week's Matariki experience focused on exploring the significance of the Matariki cluster of stars and making connection with Papatuanuku (mother earth).
As we welcome and celebrate our first ever national Matariki public holiday, we wish everyone a safe and happy Matariki!
