Happy 2016 to you all.  A quick reminder that Russell Street School opens for instruction on Monday, February 1 at our regular time of 8.55 am.  The Office team will be on site Friday, January 29, making stationery sales from 10 am to 2 pm.

Please note all staff are already on site at various times, for a range of planning and preparation meetings, but will be engaged on retreat January 27-29.

The Principal welcomes knowing about any new in-zone enrolments now, as this facilitates a smooth start of year organisation.  Please email him principal@russellst.school.nz or leave a message on the answer phone (06-3586671) If you are considering enrolment at RSS, please note the usual place of residence for your child must be in-zone. There are no further places for out of zone students at this time, as space does not allow.

We look forward to re-connecting (or meeting you for the first time) for what promises to be another exciting year.

Regards

David Reardon (Principal)

Once again our students have worked to produce a stunning art work for our community to enjoy. Aye Thy, Georgia Tindle, Joseph Brown, Iggy Puki-Smith, Olivia Furness, Rileigh Lambie and Sophie Willson spent more than two weeks planning and creating the images under the watchful eye of Carolyn Dodd.

Russell Street School was awarded one of only 10 highly commended awards in the National 2015 Resene Mural competition.The mural can be viewed on the hall wall when entering the Russell Street gates.

Each panel tells an individual students story showing how children learn together. The unique colours represent the student’s individuality.
