The children engaged in lots of activities to celebrate Matariki. The children did painting, art and craft activities, baking, helping in preparation of kai, singing, dancing, storytelling and researching about Matariki using the Ipad. The teachers also supported the children rehearse and prepare action songs for the Matariki function at the centre. The parents enjoyed seeing their participate in the action songs. These experiences enable children to demonstrate familiarity with and enjoyment of stories, music, song, dance, drama and art valued by the cultures represented in the community.
