What is Matariki?

Matariki is the Māori name for the star cluster known as the Pleiades. Traditionally for Māori when it appeared just before dawn in late May or early June, it signalled the start of the Māori New Year.
We are asking our whanau to keep week 6 free as the students at Leabank School will be sharing what they have learnt about Matariki and will be putting on some performances for parents and our community to come along and enjoy.
