Each year in early June or late May every school will celebrate Matariki. Matariki, or Māori New Year celebrations were once popular, but stopped in the 1940s.Matariki literally means the Gods eyes.Matariki is the Māori name for the small cluster of stars also known as the Pleiades or the Seven Sisters, in the Taurus constellation. In New Zealand it comes into view low on the north-eastern horizon, appearing in the tail of the Milky Way in the last days of May or in early June, just before dawn. This heralds the Māori New Year.I also learned about what happened in the store.
