Kainga Ora Fieldtrip
Yesterday we took part in the Kainga Ora community building project at Owairaka District School. It focused on the different occupations that were in our neighbourhood.
The activities in the community building were really fun, the Kainga Ora team were very welcoming and helpful. We got to try out different activities that linked to their jobs. We did lots of activities such as construction, rules on how to be safe in construction centres, plumbing games on the computers, trying out the digger, sitting in the driver’s seat of trucks that suck up water, and designing our own neighbourhood by drawing houses, parks and people on a big piece of paper. We were so grateful to Owairaka School for welcoming us to their school. We enjoyed being there with them and had a great time. We appreciated how the workers took some time off their jobs and to share their knowledge with us.

Thank you to the Samoan Community for their generosity of time and expertise in helping with our school umu.
What is an umu?
An Umu is a traditional Samoan oven that is above the ground, made out of stones. The stones have to be heated in the fire before placing food onto the Umu. The food is wrapped in banana leaves or tin foil or you can also put the food into half a coconut. You can put food like lamb, taro, chicken, and pork. You can also cook seafood such as fish and other sea animals.
