Whakanuia Matariki, Whakanuia te Tau Hou Māori – Celebrate Matariki – Celebrate the Māori New Year!
Matariki starts this year on 28 June, but we are kicking off early with a special preschool storytime series all about Matariki, myths and outer space.
The series will run for four weeks at Cummings Park Library, Ngaio and starts on Wednesday the 11th of June at 10.30am.
Preschoolers are encouraged to bring along something creative they’ve made to do with Matariki, myths and outer space. It could be a star, a rocket ship, a woven kete, a taniwha, a Matariki kite or anything related to Ao Māori (Māori world) made with or without the help of parents and caregivers. All children who bring along art will receive a prize!
We would love to create a starry night sky out of the preschoolers’ art in the children’s area.
