Hangi Lunch

As a part of our celebration of Te Wiki O Te Reo Māori (Māori language week) next week, our student leaders want to give Emmanuel Christian School the opportunity to enjoy a meal cooked in the traditional Māori style (a Hāngi).   A typical hāngi is a traditional Māori meal which is cooked in the ground, but ours will be cooked in a multi-kai cooker which looks a bit like a special BBQ. This will guarantee that it will be cooked thoroughly and on time. Even though the cooking method is slightly different, it will still taste as delicious as ever. 

Each meal is completely gluten/dairy/nut free and will consist of a serving of: kumara, potato, cabbage, pumpkin and chicken.  Meals will come in two sizes; small and large; they will cost $6 and $8 respectively with the small having a drumstick and a chicken wing  and some vegetables and the large having between ¼ and ½ chicken and vegetables. If you have never experienced a hāngi yourself, please feel free to purchase one too and join us for lunch on Wednesday 13th September for an experience that you will never forget.  

Order forms were sent home this week.  Please ensure these are returned to the Office by the end of TODAY (Friday 9th September).

Māori & Pasifika Whānau Hui

Whānau Hui will be held on the 14th of September from 6 – 7:30pm in the staff room.

This will be a time of Whanuangatanga – fellowship & tuakana teina – learning from each other.
