OROMAHOE SCHOOL MATARIKI LIGHT FESTIVAL
The Oromahoe School Matariki Light Festival is an annual event that has been running for a number of years. It is a greatly anticipated event by the whole community.
There are lantern displays and grottos, a Matariki movie to view, a glow in the dark tunnel display and the culmination of the event is our famous lantern walk which showcases students (and teachers) creativity.
There is a range of entertainment ranging from a live band and roving musicians to children’s games or just sit around a brazier and enjoy the atmosphere. There is a range of fantastic food stalls, as well as raffles and silent auctions which we are able to run with the help of our generous sponsors.
