Matariki is the Māori name for the group of stars also known as the Pleiades star cluster or the Seven Sisters. Matariki is referred to as the traditional Māori New Year. The Māori New Year is marked by the rise of Matariki and the sighting of the next new moon. Matariki events occur throughout New Zealand and the timing of the events varies depending on iwi and geographical differences.
NS ELLERSLIE VILLAGE Wearable Arts 2013
At Natural Steps our centres choose a charity each year to fundraise and extend children’s learning in the value and joy of helping others and working together. In 2012 with the sale of tickets and art work created by the children $2000 was raised for Cure Kids, doubling our original target. With a new theme 'traditional and fairytale's, learning is in full swing and the children have come up with the idea of making their own costumes out of wearable art!
NS ALBANY Nursery at Play
We are so fortunate in the Nursery to have such imaginative teachers; the infant children got to experience the outdoor autumn leaves in the comfort of the nursery room. The children were able to use all their senses to experience the crunching of the beautiful leaves. The colours were amazing and with no time restraints the children have been able to be completely absorbed in their investigation.
