Making a Positive Difference


Posted on 28 May 2018

Matariki starts on the 15th of June. Matariki marks the coming of the Māori new year - and a signal for the time to plant new crops.
Matariki is an important time to celebrate our beautiful environment and show respect to our land and surroundings. 
Check out this video with tips on  how to spot the constellation in the sky!
We'd love to hear some Matariki spotting stories! 


Kia ara ake, kia tō a Matariki, kua haere ētahi mahi.  

Matariki by its rising and setting signalled the time to commence certain activities.

Ka puta Matariki ka rere Whanui.  

Matariki re-appears. Whanui starts its flight. Being the sign of the New Year!
