Tamariki & Taiao

Aug. 27, 2020, 6:46 p.m.

Two early childhood centres in Te Hiku have focussed on the wellbeing of their tamariki by drawing on the environment and matauranga Māori. In a Matariki exhibition, the teachers and children were celebrated for the work that had developed over the year, leading up to the Māori New Year. 

Rongoā Māori, Māori medicines, were harvested and made with the support of local experts and gifted to the whānau as a way of enhancing and supporting the wellbeing of everyone involved in the centre.
