Mānawatia a Matariki, Celebrate Matariki

Mānawa maiea te putanga o Matariki

Mānawa maiea te ariki o te rangi

Mānawa maiea te Mātahi o te tau

Celebrate the rising of Matariki

Celebrate the rising of the lord of the sky

Celebrate the rising of the new year

Matariki is the Māori name for the cluster of stars, that rises in midwinter and for many Māori, heralds the start of the new year. For the first time in Aotearoa, it will officially be celebrated as a public holiday.

Spread the word to your colleagues and join the IPANZ New Professionals for an evening to come together and reflect on the year that has passed, celebrate the present, and plan for the future.

Enjoy delicious platters, good chats and forming connections with your peers from across the public service.

VENUE NOTE: This event will be held in the Foxtail Bar - you can find Foxtail by going upstairs at Foxglove and walking through the mirrored wardrobe to the right of the bar“.
