Their motto is "Respect Others"  and underpins the values and attributes they endeavour to instill into their students throughout their time at Manuka School and I could see that on our first visit with the Kids Can Cook Kitchen

I was so impressed by Manuka School … the Kids Can Cook Kitchen set up for a busy day.  We talked about French food, Italian Food and of course what is in our back yards, what do we call NZ food.  There was no shortage of Sous Chefs as they all gave it a go on the Kids Can Cook Kitchen, we learnt that a Sous Chef is a French word for

second in charge, we learnt that they eat frogs legs and snails in France and that we have some of the best food in New Zealand………Kiwifruit, Pavlova, Kumara, Manuka Honey, Whitebait, Mussels, Crayfish, Paua, Wild Pork and of course Pineapple Lumps !!


One of the best things about Manuka School… the fact that there were so many good manners, so many good taste testers as they all came up and gave it a go on the Kids Can Cook Kitchen.   It is all about giving it a go, trying something that you have never tried before, getting up and tasting something just a little bit different…..well done to all of my taste testers, well done to all
