Easter, Autumn, Mid-winter/Matariki, Spring, and Advent Festivals are celebrated throughout the year. Leading up to the festival students are led to a relationship with the event and the season through activities, stories, songs and verse. The festivals are celebrated annually allowing the students to build up a body of knowledge and enhancing their experience over time.
The children are encouraged to experience respect and reverence for the earth and life as a whole, through a rhythmical celebration of seasonal and traditional festivals throughout the course of the year. These festival days are celebrations which bring the whole community together and offer an opportunity for the teachers and children to engage in drama, artistic presentations, crafts and singing. This rhythmical celebration of seasonal festivals encourages the children to experience respect and reverence for the earth and life as a whole.
