Event description
Plunket welcomes the attendees of New Plymouth, Waitara and Inglewood Playgroups to our PUANGA Celebration!

About this Event

"‘Ko Puanga te pae ārahi i ngā tohu o te tau hou i te pae ururangi'

– 'Puanga leads the celestial signs to herald the New Year.’

All iwi celebrate the Māori New Year in June or July, but not all iwi refer specifically to this time of year as Matariki. Instead, other iwi will name this time of year ‘Puanga’."

- SOURCE: Te Papa

Join us as we celebrate the Māori New Year, Puanga with kai (we are going to treat you to a "Kai Cooker" Hangi and warm soup); we will do some crafts and hold a karakia and reflection time under the stars to finish off our night (weather dependant).

Please bring some water for your little ones and warm clothes. We look forward to sharing this wonderful time with you :)
