We recently held a special morning tea and teddy bear story time to celebrate Matariki. As part of these celebrations the children are sharing how their name was chosen and the family history behind it. We have begun learning about family cultures and linking Maori legends to developing our own art.
As part of our Fundraising this year we held our second parent evening to make beeswax kai wraps. This was also a time to create peach and ginger jam from our earlier peaches crop. It’s sure to be delicious. Both the kai wraps and jam will be on sale at this year’s Tarawera Spring Fair.
