Darwin persuades us to celebrate Matariki
Dear Ms Hansell,
Do you think we should celebrate Matariki to celebrate the Maori people at Tamaki Primary School? I think we should, because it is a formal and traditional celebration for Maori.
My second reason is that it brings a fresh start for the New Zealand culture. It brings new growth and new light.
My third reason is that it is important to the Maori culture to have their own new year celebration.
I believe we should celebrate Matariki at Tamaki Primary School so we can make our Maori community happy.
