Matariki 2017 Epsom Girls Grammar

Students, whanau and teachers gathered outside the Raye Freedman Arts Centre at 5.30am for karakia to celebrate te ao marama and remember our ancestors. Together we walked up Maungawhau to glimpse the glinting Matariki constellation. The in-zone students sang a beautiful waiata to mark the event before the mist and patupaiarehe rolled in. At dawn we returned for delicious kai, fried bread prepared by the Food Technology team, cereal from Sanitarium and lots of good coffee. The walk is part of a PLG with a focus on bicultural classrooms in 2017.
