At First Steps Peachgrove we celebrated matariki. The children had the opportunity to learn about manaakitanga through preparing boil up, fried bread, and a hangi for their whanau. They performed 3 kapa haka items. They performed a waiata-a-ringa to waikato e, poi to e rere taku poi, and sang a waiata te aroha. They also planted their special harakeke to symbolise new beginnings for the maori new year. The night was summed up with toasting marshmallows and sitting under the stars. What a night to remember.
