Join in the Fun These School Holidays

Free activities at Westfield!

Westfield centres are bringing a Maori legend and the native Pukeko to life these school holidays, with free activities for children.

Attendees will be welcomed with a Karakia (Maori blessing) while entering through a traditional Maori arch designed to display the creation of time. From there children can delve into the legend of Hakuturi and Rata or make their very own Pukeko Marionette to take home.

Westfield school holiday activities are free and perfect for school-aged kids from 5 to 10 years old.

Keep an eye out for Monty, who will be making special appearances throughout the school holidays too!
