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!
From our planning last year, part of term 2’s Professional Development focus for staff is a Teacher Only Day centred around the Treaty of Waitangi and its significance in today’s society. Please Note…
SCHOOL WILL BE CLOSED FOR INSTRUCTION ON FRIDAY JUNE 2nd for all the staff to be able to attend the training day.
We hope you have noted this date on the school calendar (at the top of the TNB and website) and have made arrangements for your child/ren. We have informed out-of-school providers and they are able to offer their service on this day. Kelly Club will be on site. Please contact Renee (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like more detail on costs and the day’s programme.
As it is Queen’s Birthday weekend we will see the children back at school on Tuesday June 6th.
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.
