Matangi School has put together a cookbook to help raise money to upgrade our school pool and the surrounding native area. So far, we have received nearly 100 unique recipe submissions from our school community, and we couldn’t be happier with the quality and variety of these recipes. It will be a book packed with sentimental recipes for the entire family to enjoy, recipes made in our homes for our children. 

This cookbook is professionally printed to the highest of standards. It has a semi-rigid cover and a pocket on the inside cover to store additional/loose recipes, and it wouldn’t look out of place on the shelves of any bookstore.

At the heart of Matangi School is our Tui-riffic mascot. Tui-riffic is a very special part of the Matangi learning community and is someone that all students and teachers are proud of. This symbol represents our Matangi students who strive for excellence in everything they do. The wings of our Tui carry the four cornerstone vision statements from the New Zealand Curriculum: Confident, Connected, Actively Involved and Lifelong Learners.

So with all that in mind, our cookbook will be called ‘Nectar’.
