Charlene and I took the video camera for a walk yesterday and had a chat with some students about their mums in honour of Mother’s Day this Sunday.

If you forgot about it then you can thank us later for the reminder. You’d better get something sorted by Sunday!

Click on the image above to see the video featuring mums’ best advice and how they describe their mums in one word…finished off with a big I LOVE YOU MUM, naw!

Egg Fried Rice


1 cup of cooked white rice
2 whole eggs

6 Tbsp of soy sauce


Heat Olive oil in a pan for a minute or two                                                       Pour well beaten eggs to the pan, cook and scramble them                   Set aside the scrambled egg sin a separate dish                                         Add another spoon of oil to the pan

The UC Co-curricular Record has launched!


If you’re a first year undergrad degree student, there’s an exciting initiative that you can join called the Co-curricular Record (CCR).

Then you can join activities (like the Student Volunteer Army, or being a UC Mentor) and have them logged on your Record, including the experiences and skills you picked up. Your CCR is a great way to demonstrate how you got out there and helped out your fellow students as a part of UC, and can even serve as an added bonus for when you go job hunting!

Even better, UC’s CCR is the first of its kind in New Zealand, putting you a step above other university graduates!

If you’re interested, read more about the CCR and sign up. Feel free to contact the Student Experience Team if you have any questions:
