Matariki Workshops

We had two workshops during our Matariki celebrations - one after morning tea and one after lunch (1.5 hours each). The tamariki were able to choose two workshops that interested them and it was amazing to see our senior students working alongside our junior students. Tuakana-teina at its finest! Tuakana-teina is a teaching and learning approach from Te Ao Māori – the Māori world. It refers to the relationship between an older person (tuakana) and a younger person (teina).

Workshops included making tukutuku stars with Beth, fabric weaving with Shelley, planting in the Junior School gardens with Mel and learning about the star Tupu-ā-nuku, creating stained glass feathers with Shannon, creating a Matariki Korowai Cloak with a reliever Morgan, Year 5 and 6 tamariki could choose to make a notebook with Gill and Mr D, waffle making with Sarah Ali-Khan (Clover's mum), star painting with Emily and Craig Tidey (Rosemary's mum), hanging garden planting with Amanda and Elke, wool stars with Beks (Archie's mum), Chinese New Year paper cutting with Mr Lim and making Fry bread with Keryn Broughton (Izzy, Bill and Rosie's mum) and Laura (Persephone's mum).
