We have an exciting day of Matariki celebrations planned for Friday 25 June.
You and your whanau are invited to join us at 6.30am at the Island Bay Surf Club for a dawn beach celebration. The celebration includes waiata (songs), a karakia and a talk by a special guest speaker. Don't forget to wrap up warm, it will be chilly!
This is followed by a Matariki breakfast served in the school hall from 7-8.15am. A koha would be appreciated, and please BYO utensils/plates etc.
The annual tree planting ceremony will be at 8.30am to celebrate Māori new year.
During the morning there will be two slide show talks by Toa Waaka. The seniors will have their talk at VP, from 9.15-9.45am and the junior school will have their talk in Rimurimu from 10.15-11am.
All parents and families welcome. Any queries, see Maria
