The Koru

Recently room 3 have been doing art based on the Maori symbol of the Koru. Here is a bit of information that helps explain the concepts behind it.

The Koru is a Maori symbol that represents moving back to the beginning. It refers to the circular flow towards an inner coil and unfolding of a silver fern. It is thought that the unfolding of a fern is symbolic of new life, rebirth, hope, personal growth, purity and perfection. We found that this symbolism compliments our Art work themes of the tree of life and our colour schemes 'sunset and sunrise'.
