Tikanga for Hāngi

Next week is our annual Te Puawi concert and Hāngi.
Papa Jack talked to us about the tikanga or rules around making a proper Hāngi and why we do it.

Below are some questions about Hāngi you need to complete for your S.D.A.

Use the link below to find your information!


  • Why do we have a Hāngi?
  • Who gets to light the fire?
  • When were Hāngi used on the Marae?
  • Why do you put the meat closest to the rocks?
  • Did they originally cook lamb in the past? How do you know?

Hi everyone,

Thank you to all the kids that brought their blenders in today. The kids had amazing fun making and drinking their smoothies. The wraps disappeared quickly which is a good sign, most of the kids thought they were delicious. Their fitness plans today were great, the kids knew exactly which plans met their purpose.

Check out our video about wearing ACTIVE WEAR on ACTIVE DAY :-)
