Today we had a shared kai and invited families to bring in a plate of food that is special to their culture or something that they love to eat at home together. Some of our children even dressed up in special cultural attire which was so very special.
Once again our families made this shared kai a wonderful event. There was truck loads of delicious food, from spicy rice cakes to seafood chowder and fry bread, mini mince and cheese pies to sushi, banana cake to fish and chips. It was endless and amazing! We had a grand time trying to fit it all in our bellies!

We absolutely love having these events at Mairtown as they are always times filled with lots of excitement and joy. It is a lovely way for families to catch up with one another or for new connections to be made. Our shared kai today was a huge success due to the participation and dedication from our beautiful families. We would just like to take the opportunity to say thank you to everyone who helped out, made food and came along. We will be having more shared kai in the near future and look forward to celebrating these with you all again.
Till next time,
