Staff dance to the Matariki Macarena

Ngā mihi nui o te tau hou Māori. Matariki is a time of reflection and planning. We took time to learn about the rising of the Matariki constellation and what it means for Māori and those of us who live in Aotearoa NZ. We learned the Matariki Macarena so that we can remember each star in the cluster. Mānawatia a Matariki! Happy Māori New Year!
