Dear Ms Hansell,
Do you think we should celebrate Matariki at school? I think we should.
Firstly it is important to the Maori culture to have their own new year celebration, and we don't actually have that many celebrations to celebrate in New Zealand.
Secondly it brings a fresh new start to the New Zealand culture.
Finally it will be great to celebrate all these things together because we will be able to get to know people better.
You can see from the evidence that we should celebrate Matariki at school.
