Before I go To Bed I See A...

There's a jingle in my jar
And rain on my shoe
There's a mat under my legs
And pain on my hands

There's kids on the road
And they are having fun
There's grass on the path
And people in the sun

There's lots of people at Burger King
And people playing basketball
There's trees at Ruapotaka
And badminton in the main hall

It was about maths like measuring area and space.

Last week up and down the country people celebrated Matariki, the constellation rose on 25th June, beginning a month of celebration and recognition of the end of one year and the start of the next. It a chance to celebrate all that went on in the last year, to give thanks for food, family, friends and all that we have, and an opportunity to look ahead to all that next year will bring. But being so close to the Queen's birthday- for which New Zealanders get a day off- there are suggestions that there should be a public holiday to recognise such an important occasion, After all, the new year in January gets a public holiday.
