matariki celebrations 2011

The Hikoi, or walk, through Waihi township last Friday was awesome. It was great to see so many schools involved, along with locals and visitors who either watched or took part in the walk, waiata (songs) and kai or lunch at the Pumphouse.

Next it’s the Community Concert coming up next Wednesday (27 June 2018) at Waihi College from 5 pm to about 6.30 pm, again with an open invitation.

Still to come are the Tapuwae Tournament, a neat game for all ages, being run at Waihi Central School next Tuesday, July 3.

Then on Friday 6 July you’re welcome to the Dawn Viewing at Bowentown Heads. This is a good opportunity for anyone to have the stars pointed out and to hear a little history about Matariki’s background.
