Tēnā tātou e te whānau 

That time has come that you have all been waiting for, the winning Block this year is being awarded to ...... 

 B Block (English and Learning Support) with their displays for Tupu-ā-nuku!  

Kia rawe o koutou mahi ki te wero o Matariki !! Amazing attempts this year across the board. It was awarded to B block as they hit the brief and used a combination of Student work, natural resources, and related to their star. Tau kē koutou!

Ngā mihi to everyone that joined in this year. Matariki is a special time of year for us all. It's a time of reflection and new beginnings. Reconnection and new relationships. Kia kaha , Kia Maia , Kia Manawatia ā Matariki.
