Matariki Celebration Thursday 23 June

Kei ngā whānau katoa e noho taurikura ana ki ngā pitopito o Tauranga Moana, nau mai piki mai ki tētahi kaupapa whakahirahira hei whakanui i a Matariki.

" Matariki hunga nui - Matariki of many people"

This Whakataukī can be interpreted for people to gather together and celebrate the Māori New Year, by reflecting on the past year, thinking about the surrounding environment, those who cannot be with us and setting new goals for the year.

This Thursday Pāpāmoa College will be hosting an observation of the rising of Matariki at Mōtītī Reserve.

We are extending a warm welcome to our community to join us for this celebration.

Date: Thursday 23 June
Time: 5.45am - 6.30am

We have  a wet weather option which will be the following week, keep an eye on on Facebook page for cancellations and change of dates.

IF YOU DREAM IT, YOU CAN BECOME IT."
