Matariki Waihi

The Matariki Waihi Webpage has been set up as a collection of resources and songs that we use during our Matariki Celebrations each year.

In 2011 the united communities of Waihi, Waihi Beach, Otawhiwhi, Waimata, Waikino and Karangahake began to come together to celebrate Matariki.

We have a number of teachers and community members who work tirelessly to make the opportunities and experiences available to our tamariki. We appreciate everyone who work behind the scenes and those who lead at the front.


Matariki is a time to prepare; to learn, to share ideas, and to celebrate the future.


He whakanui a Matariki

i te tikanga, i te reo,

i te wairua me te iwi.


Matariki is a celebration of

culture, language, spirit and people.
