At Mairtown Kindergarten we believe it is vitally important to welcome our new families/whānau. A great way to achieve this is through sharing kai/food together.
Celebrating our kindergarten community with shared kai provides an excellent opportunity for whānau/families to engage with each other, meet new friends and make connections. This is especially great for those who are new to our town. As teachers it’s a wonderful opportunity to meet our children’s extended family and friends, people who we may not have had the chance to meet yet.
Family and friends are hidden treasures, seek them and enjoy their riches.

After much anticipation amongst our tamariki on Wednesday 6th May 2015 we held this term’s shared kai. It was so lovely to see so many of our children’s parents, grandparents, auntie’s, cousins and friends that were able to join us for lunch. We are very fortunate to have such a diverse community, who generously made and brought delicious food to share, including food from their own cultures.
