We are proud and excited to be participating in Samoan Language Week with our Pasifika community at Russell Street School. Check out this amazing video to kick start our week:

This morning James put up the Samoan flag too!
Fa’afetai! Tofā loa!
We are super proud of our latest school band! Actually, for the first time ever, Russell Street School has enough musicians for 2 bands. I am very proud of how we are working together – great job team. Watch this space to find out when our first performance will be.

On Wednesday, the performing arts group made up of The Rustling Ukes, Adopted Owl and the Epic and Whanau Roopu went on tour. We departed Russell Street school at 8:45am on 2 buses, set up and packed down 8 times, visited 4 venues and performed in front of over 1000 people all in one day! Wow! The performers gave 100% at every show, making me extremely proud! The day would have fallen over if we had not had the incredible support from teachers and parents. Thank you so much for generously giving your time.
