School Athletics Day

Next week on Tuesday 7th November we have our Whole School Athletics Day up at Massey Athletics Track. The children will leave school by bus at approximately 9.15am to arrive for a 9.30am brief. We will return to school by 2.30pm. The proposed timetable for the day is listed below if you would like to come and watch. 

Can you please ensure you send your child to school with a good lunch, plenty of water, warm clothes, Russell Street hat and appropriate footwear. (Please load on the sunblock before leaving home) If you can, wear your house colours:
Tui is Yellow, Kiwi is Red, Kereru is Blue, Kea is Green.

If the weather is looking a bit questionable, we will send a text confirming the event  the morning of. If you would like to come and support, please use the top car parking and walk down. The track car park will be closed to general public with exception to the mobility parks. Soul Sista Streets Coffee Cart will be there from 9.30am to keep the parents caffeinated.

Anyone available to support our teachers run an event would be greatly appreciated. Please see your child’s classroom teacher if you can offer your time.

Any further questions, come in and see Troy or send an email to

RICOH Tournament 2017

Last Wednesday we took 5 teams to the annual RICOH Sport Tournament here at the Arena and Manawaroa Park. College Street, Riverdale, Hokowhitu and Central Normal took part and it was an amazing day of tough competition and great camaraderie. Our Hockey Team managed to come 3rd overall and Rugby took out 4th place overall. Netball and Soccer both placed 5th and Basketball came in 6th. Tyler Mauchline was recognised by the coaches/organsiers for his fairplay, Well Done Tyler!

Turbos Visit Russell Street.

Today we were very lucky to have Liam Hallam-Eames and Tuki Raimona from the Manawatu Turbos come in and inspire us, answer some questions and play some great rugby with us. Everyone left feeling excited and enthused. They were very impressed with the level of athleticism on show and the high levels of respect and manaakitanga. We wish the Turbos all the best for their next home game against Tasman.
