Kia ora koutou,


I wanted to suggest a few creative things you and your whānau can make or do at home during the level 3 and 4 lockdown. These activities don’t require a lot of specific ingredients or tools and you can use whatever veggies you have on hand. Please do email me or upload your photos to Google Classroom if you try them out!

Kia Manahau!

Garden to Table for the whole whanau.

Mon Aug 23 04:48pm

Tēnā koutou i tēnei ahiahi,


Today Room 2 would have had their very first Garden to Table session, as we can’t be together at school, I thought why not bring Garden to Table home. On today’s menu we have Herbed Cheese Scones and homemade butter.


Ruby & Nico tested these recipes out today, we used chives from the garden and cayenne pepper. Be inventive, you could use any combination of herbs you like in your recipe, dried, fresh, even kawakawa for a peppery hit. If you would like to share your kitchen creations, please email me, I will put together a Garden to Table blog for our lockdown recipes.
