Term 4 Week 9

Kia ora

We can't believe that the last week of term, and last week of school for 2022, is here.

We have had such a fabulous year working with your tamariki. Thank you for being so supportive of their learning journey in Uenuku. We wish the year 1 students that will be heading to Pounamu next year the very best of luck. To the year 0 students in Karaka, we are looking forward to you being back in Uenuku with Miss Jensen, Bina and Rebecca in 2023.

End of year assembly - this Thursday

Our joint Pounamu and Uenuku end of year assembly will be held on Thursday at 9:15am in the hall. We would love to see you there!

Health Education Lessons - Room 6 and Room 7 students only.

Due to the business of EOTC week last week, we didn't manage to complete all of the sessions. Please refer to the separate email sent last week regarding these lessons. We will be teaching the last two lessons tomorrow (Tuesday) afternoon.

These will be those titled 'Safe and unsafe touching' and 'Who can help me'.


It is that time of year when we ask for all library books, reading books, school t-shirts and any other school equipment to come back to school. You might even come across some of our blue, green and yellow GROW tokens in pockets or at the bottom of school bags - these can be added to the GROW tower in the office please.

Lost Property

We have LOTS of lost property in the Uenuku lost property bin. We will lay this out on the Uenuku court for everyone to view. Please check it out and claim any items that your child is missing. We will send a photograph home later in the week of any remaining items if you are unable to check out the items after school. Thank you.
