MĀNOA ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
Together we will nurture, empower, and inspire all students
A beautiful Ulu tree has been planted at Manoa School. Uncle Bruce, Aunty Kehau, Aunty Helen, Kumu Kaulu, and Kumu Kahalei brought two trees to our school. They wanted to share what a great plant the Ulu is and to increase the number of Ulu trees in Manoa Valley. This is because the Ulu tree can be used for many things. The fruit and seeds can be eaten and are both tasty and nutritious. The tree can also be used for construction materials, medicine, fabric, glue, insect repellent, animal feed, and much more. Students chanted, "E Ulu, E Ola!", wishing the Ulu tree to grow strong. Visit our Ulu tree; it's located just outside of the health room. You can learn more about the Ulu at www.breadfruit.org, and www.breadfruit.info.
