Nau mai, haere mai ki Kai Iwi School

We are a full primary school located approximately 10 km northwest of Whanganui, in the small rural community of Kai Iwi.

 

Our school has strong community support and a high level of parent participation. Our students enjoy regular experiences outside the classroom and across the wider district and have many opportunities to develop skills and build on their learning in our spacious and well-maintained school environment.

 

Our school values were collaboratively developed with our community and are represented as respect, resilience and responsibility.

Principal: Ross Harvey

 Learning About Matariki and Puanga

 

 Traditionally, Māori celebrate the start of a new year in mid-winter   (May-June). The new year begins on the first new moon after the star   cluster Matariki rises in the eastern sky. That’s why the Māori new year   is called Matariki. Matariki is a time to gather with whānau (family) and   friends to reflect on the past, celebrate the present, and plan for the   future.

 

 Matariki’s reappearance in the north-east sky is not visible in all parts   of  New Zealand, especially in areas to the west of mountains. For some   iwi in Taranaki and Whanganui, and on the West Coast of the South   Island, the new year begins with the rising of Puanga.
