Matariki

01/07/20

Matariki, the Māori New Year, is typically marked by the rise of the Matariki star cluster and the sighting of the next new moon. Some iwi observe the rise of the lone star Puaka as the beginning of the new year.

In 2020, the Matariki cluster will set on 15 May and return from 13–16 July. The Matariki period is 13–20 July. 

Our event page is packed with ideas and resources to help you celebrate this significant national event with your students, parents, and whānau.
