Matariki: An Appreciation of Beauty and Excellence - Susie, Chris and Gillian
This morning our wonderful bunch started off the day by wandering down to our magnificent Worser Bay beach. Along the way we admired and reflected on all the beautiful sights, sounds and smells that were all around us. We all agreed that we really are so lucky to be surrounded by all of this beauty.
After morning tea we got stuck into some collaborative art pieces. With a buddy, we made a 'Thankful Tree' and created some Matariki stars to hang on a massive mobile. Our Thankful Trees show all the things we are thankful for in our lives - we thought really hard about what we were thankful for. Each Matariki star was connected to either the land, sea, river/lake, forest or our families and aspirations.
Our collaborative art pieces will be displayed around the school next week during our Arts Celebration.
We were also super lucky to have Janet run a yoga workshop with us. The yoga helped us to tune into our bodies and thoughts and gave us a clear, calm mind heading into the afternoon.
Thank you to all those parents that helped us out today. We really enjoyed your company! We really are so grateful for all the sensational things surrounding us, at home and at school.
