OUT& Students about celebrate Matariki
By Emma McAuliffe
Kilbirnie School students had the opportunity to celebrate Matariki last week. The school held its second annual celebration of the event last Thursday. Principal Tony Austin said as part of the event children would get to choose three activities to take part in during the day, which would include everything from art to poi making to pre-
paring soup and bread. The soup and bread were then served at the school’s evening event where the Kapa Haka group performed, followed by some star gazing. “The evening event was organised by our parent led group, ParentLink. “We are trying to express both Te Ao and Te Reo Maori and trying to express that commitment around the school,” Tony said.
