Te Hangi Experience at Joseph Banks

Te Hangi is a traditional New Zealand Māori method of cooking food using heated rocks buried in a pit oven, called an umu. On Wednesday 2 November students at Joseph Banks Secondary College, in Western Australia, took part in a Te Hangi Experience.

Students from New Zealand and Island heritage at the school, form the ‘1-Culture’ group which is active in the school. Through the Te Hangi, these students embraced their culture and proudly shared their traditions with the broader school community.

The delicious food can be seen in the photo above, and the cooking process can be seen in the photo below.
