We have 6 full time teachers, 1 reading recovery teacher, 2 full time teacher aides and 2 part time teacher aides. We currently have 145 students.
The school is made up of 6 well resourced classrooms, teacher aide breakout spaces, a purpose built library, a STEM room and access to the Community Hall which is adjacent to the school and used frequently. We also have a school pool (which we use daily over the warmer months) a fantastic playground and spacious grounds for the children's use.
Next door to the school is the Puahue Playcentre, a popular and run well Playcentre with 2 weekly sessions.
Puahue School has a compulsory school and PE uniform. All uniform items are available at The Warehouse Te Awamutu.
The PE Uniform consists of the royal blue with black panels sports top and plain black shorts. The school uniform is a blue polo shirt, worn with either navy blue shorts, a skirt, a skort or long pants. A long sleeve polar fleece sweatshirt is also available for the colder months. Hats (also available at the Warehouse) are worn in Terms 1 and 4.
We like to maintain a high standard of uniform and would appreciate parents/caregivers adhering to the guidelines below to keep it fair for all.
