This term the Year 3 children in the Tumanako area will be attending a workshop that is on offer at the VODAFONE EVENTS CENTRE as part of their learning about the Arts and also for Matariki celebrations.
The workshop is called: Toi Matariki
“The Toi Matariki workshop provides opportunities for students to experience the traditional Maori art forms of raranga (weaving), kotuhi (stone painting) and uku (clay work). Experienced in the light of storytelling myths and legends, the workshops are delivered from a Maori art perspective by the senior artists who support the creation of a narrative for their toi (art) production. This highly engaging and fun exercise also stresses the role of nature in society and the importance of taking care of the environment”
The children will need to make sure that they bring their P.E gear so that they can participate in the workshop.
Date: Thursday 30th June 2016
Cost of the trip: $ 5
Leaving school: 9 approx. and returning around 12.30pm
Miss Lord, Miss Damons and Mrs Ryan will be taking the Year 3 children on this trip and the Year 4 children will remain at school with Mrs Gass and Mr Norman.
