Cultural Committee Leads Kura Kai Connection

AC —

We’re proud to highlight the work of our student-led Cultural Committee which is spearheading Aquinas participation in Kura Kai, a charity encouraging students to cook meals for local families in need.

Driven by the motto ‘whānau cooking for whānau,’ Kura Kai donates freezers to high schools and supports them to get student volunteers involved in cooking much-needed meals.

Y13 students Thea Smith and Jadel Taitumu-Boot are two of our Cultural Committee leaders responsible for the Kura Kai-Aquinas partnership. We’re sharing their Kura Kai journey in the hope it inspires more of our rangatahi to get involved and start cooking within our Kura.

Their Matariki cook-up is this Saturday, June 25 which they hope will fill the Aquinas Kura Kai freezer. A HUGE ngā mihi to Jon Morrison and his team at PAK‘nSAVE Tauriko for their generous $1,000 koha so the students can start cooking.
