What a beautiful sunny Friday to celebrate our Maori New Year: Matariki. Tamariki in First Steps Avondale’s Rewa Rewa room had a rather busy yet fun-filled day. All the children looked cool in their black and red outfits. After morning tea, nga tamariki helped our kaiako Wendy to make Maori Fry Bread which was so delicious that the tamariki enjoyed it so much that they wanted more. Kaiako Wendy promised that she would make it again. Also during this week nga tamariki did some star paintings and played with the Galaxy play dough. Thank you to all parents and whanau for your support to make this day successful. Special thanks to Ashley, Parker’s mum who came to celebrate with us. We captured some happy moments to share with you.
