Dear Ms Hansell,
Why should we have a Matariki celebration in our school?
My first reason is because it is a formal and traditional celebration. Plus it is the Maori new year and I did not know that until Miss Hansell told me.
My second reason is that it is an important celebration to the Maori culture. It brings a fresh start to the NZ culture.
My third reason is it brings a time to learn about what happened in the past. The people can realise their mistakes and make their future better.
This is why we should have a Matariki celebration in our school.
