Dear Miss Arden,
Kia ora my name is Naiyah Smith and I am a year five student at Halsey Drive School. This week we have been learning about Matariki. Matariki is
an important part of Maori life so it should be given a chance to become a public holiday, because the Maori needs a part
Everybody should know that it is imported to acknowledge New Zealand’s bicultural history. Everybody should keep the culture alive. Future generations are up to the children to keep the Maori traditions alive. The Maori culture is unique and really special to New Zealand. Therefore, it is our responsibility to teach people about the stories, language and history of matariki.
Everyone knows that families are busy and they should have more time to spend together. In fact there are 9 holiday but only four of them people don't work really the is only 4 true holidays. Also it will attract tourists and public events will bring communities together.
