A karakia to welcome Matariki into the dawn sky will start the morning, before moving inside for kōrero and waiata, followed by the free community breakfast. From 9am onwards you are welcomed to enjoy the community fun day, including a range of performances and activities (Kapa Haka, workshops, crafts and more)!
