Matariki Celebration!

We had a school Matariki celebration! All of the classes were split up around the school and we had a day of tuakana teina, where the seniors and juniors all worked together! In Ako 3, the students did digital artwork with Miss West and Whaea Kelly. Each senior student paired up with a junior student and made a digital piece of artwork which expressed their thoughts about Matariki, the Māori New Year. After they had done that, Miss West took a photo of the pair. They then had to edit the photo to remove all of the background colour. Once this was done, the photo was inserted into the digital artwork to make these amazing creations! Well done to the awesome children who spent the day in Ako 3!

  5. Hi everyone, my name is Charlie from Owairaka School. I like it that you guys are still doing things about Matariki and I think it is very cool what you guys did by putting some classmates in the picture as the astronauts. The only thing that I think you should do next time is put spacesuits on the students so it looks more realistic. If you want to check out my blog go to http://odscharlieg.blogspot.com/
