Matariki !!

Matariki signals the Māori New Year. It's a time of renewal and celebration in New Zealand that begins with the rising of the Matariki star cluster (the Pleiades or Seven Sisters).  Matariki is a time to gather with family and friends to celebrate the beginning of the Maori New Year and to also plan for the future.

The seven stars Waiti, Waita, Waipunarangi, Tupu a Nuku, Tupu a Rangi and Ururangi are name after the seven sisters. 

Many people celebrate Matariki in their own way, such as going to watch the walk of light at Pt England and having a big feast with their family's

Term 2 Blog Profile

Kia Ora everyone, my name is Eti and I attend St Patrick’s School. I am a sister of 7 siblings including me. I am a Tongan, Fijian, British on my mum’s side and Samoan on my dad’s side. My favourite thing to do is play sports, especially when I play rugby because I like to tackle my brothers.
This year I have learnt a lot, such as reasons why St Patrick’s School should become a Nude food and what causes people to have diabetes,  impaired brain development and could most likely affect your health. I am good at playing sports, such as basketball, rugby, touch and tag, I  also enjoy spending every moment I have with my family including having the fun times we have together. My challenge for this year is to have a scholarship so that when I grow up I can become a rugby player or to be in the NZ Army and learn how to build houses and looking after our Nation.
What i’m looking forward to this year is to become a rugby player and to  follow the footsteps of my mum and dad. My dad also inspires me, giving me the confidence and courage to never give up in what I want to do and to achieve my goals. I am also looking forward to inspire those who wants to follow their dream.
