Tamariki shine for Matariki at Piopio Kōhanga Reo

I haere mai te whanau o Piopio ki to maatou kohanga reo ki te whakanui I a Matariki,
I taakaro, I hanga maatou I ngaa kowhatu, putiputi harakeke
He rangi whanaungatanga I waenga I ngaa kura, kohanga reo o Piopio
Ka kai hakari I te mutunga o te raa

Te Whānau o Piopio Kōhanga Reo invited tamariki from Piopio Primary, Curious Keas, Aria Playcentre and Piopio Playcentre to join them in celebrating the Māori New Year on Friday 25th June. The tamariki enjoyed weaving, decorating biscuits, painting rocks and playing together. Waiata and stories were shared by kaiako and the students and everyone enjoyed the shared kai, with a delicious hangi put on by the Kōhanga whānau.

The children enjoying kai, play, and getting a lesson from Whaea Jodine on how to make a Putiputi with harakeke.
