We had a wonderful week celebrating Waitangi Day and the importance of the Treaty for Aotearoa. We talked about what it means to live together in a safe, happy and fair Aotearoa. To make this topic authentic we shared ideas about 'What makes preschool a happy, fun and safe place to be?'.

We made our own treaty and it embodies the values and virtues held by our learners. We talked about protecting each other, helping one another, and making our environment safe for everyone else. We also made our own pounamu, and also enjoyed doing Haka at mat time.
