Looking after your wellbeing

NEF found that building five actions in to your day-to-day life is important for the wellbeing of individuals, families, communities and organisations.

Put Matariki 2022 into your calendar

Aotearoa/New Zealand’s first Matariki holiday will take place on Friday, 24 June 2022.

The actual day will differ each year depending on the appearance of Pleiades in the sky, although it has been decided Matariki will be celebrated on a Friday to make a long weekend for New Zealanders. In 2023, Matariki will be celebrated on Friday, 14 July.

The Pleiades are a cluster of stars that rise in midwinter and mark the start of the Māori New Year. Some iwi name this time of the year Puanga, after a bright star that is above and to the right of the Matariki constellation.

Stay safe this summer

After another torrid Covid year, we are all looking forward to a sunny (and healthy) summer break. Remember, if you’re boating, driving, bush walking, swimming or enjoying your backyard this summer, please stay safe, look out for others and enjoy relaxing in our beautiful country.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

We wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a happy, safe and healthy 2022.

Meri Kirihimete me te Hape Nū la.
