Why We Should Celebrate Matariki - By Mavis
Dear Ms Hansell
Would your heart feel traditional if we celebrated Matariki?
The reason why I want to celebrate Matariki is because it is a formal and traditional celebration. This is good because we can learn about the history of Matariki.
My second resaon is that it is the Maori new year and it is important to the Maori culture to have their own new year celebration.
My third reason is that it brings a fresh start to the New Zealand culture. It brings new growth and new light.
I really think we should celebrate Matariki. Don't you?
