WHARE KAI   (Lunch Room)

Our wonderful lunch ladies provide delicious, nutritious meals for our Kura. They work hard & it shows as the Whare Kai is a wonderful warm & inviting space for everyone to enjoy their lunch. All meals are made on site - fresh every day. The menu plan has a variety of dishes including some regular favorites.  (as requested by our kura)  

Fresh fruit is always served with lunch & the serving sizes are generous so everyone has enough to fill their hard working puku's.
