Matariki celebrated in Warrington

On Tuesday 24 June Warrington School celebrated Matariki, a
constellation of stars in the sky. All the children at Warrington
School went to the four corners of Warrington with their lanterns.
Then all the children met in the
middle and strode onto the tennis court. The children waited until
everyone was settled and then repeated everything they did at the
Kaupapa Maori Festival in Plamerston earlier in the month.

After a short speech from principal Nathan Parker, the students and
many playcentre children went to play down the bank in the pitch black
darkness. Occasionally they came up for some kindly donated delicious
food.

The best night all year!
