Kindergarten Lantern Festival

The kindergarten and nursery children had a magical evening for their annual Lantern Festival.

Gathering after dusk, the gently lit hall was overflowing as the kindergarteners told a story of how the stars of Matariki came to be placed in the sky to the children and their extended families.

Afterwards, the children were given their handmade lanterns they had prepared during the week, to walk and sing their way through the darkness guided by their lantern's candle light.

More singing, warm fruit tea and home-baking awaited everyone after their journey through the candlelit ‘wonderland’  to end the enchanted evening.
