Community Welcome Hangi

Community Welcome Hangi

On Tuesday 9th March, The Catlins Area School is hosting a community hangi to welcome our new principal, Glenys Hanley and her family. Students, staff, whanau and members of our community are all welcome. Kapahaka will perform a few waiata (songs) at 5 pm, then we will eat at approximately 5.15 pm.

The Hangi will be put down at school on the morning of the 9th by Richard Lean - we need helpers to do this and prepare vegetables so please let us know if you can help and we will get back to you with a time

*It would be great if each family could provide meat and vegetables from the list. Please BYO non-alcoholic drink and something to share for dessert. The meat will need to be properly thawed PLEASE, it needs to be taken out of the freezer two days in advance.

*Steamed puddings, meat and vegetables would need to be brought to school first thing on the Tuesday morning and cold desserts and drinks when you arrive.

To give us an idea of how many people we need to cater for, please complete the Google Form below.
