We are thrilled and delighted to share Liam Adrian’s success, once again. Following his 2013 awareness project on the plight of orangutan from the destruction of rainforest, his movie was entered in the Sydney International festival of film by children (Kidz Flicks).

Screen Shot 2014-05-28 at 9.02.51 pmThe movies were screened in 6 Sydney theatres from the 24 – 28th of March and viewed by over 3000 children. Last week we received notification that Liam’s “Save the Orangutan” film WON The Best Foreign Documentary category. 

This is both a great acknowledgement of Liam’s creativity and commitment, and an affirmation that our Russell Street children are capable of producing and competing with the best in world, in their chosen fields.

For children wanting to utilise the digital skills they have been developing alongside their learning, like Liam, the Manawatu Digi Awards are a great opportunity to showcase these skills. Classes will be encouraged to enter suitable class material but we also will consider student developed work created at home. If you have a great idea speak to your teacher or come and see James.

Once again, congratulations Liam. What a great message and creative vehicle to deliver it.

Location:   Russell Street School Hall

Before School Care Programme – 7.30am-8.30am

Our Beforecare Programmes offer opportunities for children to choose between a range of art and craft activities, games, Lego, books and free play equipment. Staff will lead a variety of small projects each term. All this leads to preparing children for a busy day of learning.

After School Care Programme 3.00pm-6.00pm 

Our Aftercare Programmes are focused around sports, cooking, art and craft activities as well as structured ‘free-time’ after a busy day at school.

These activities will be incorporated into themed subjects each week that give children the opportunity to extend their learning outside of the school classroom. There will be set time for children to complete homework should they (or their parents) want homework completed before they are collected.

All children on our Aftercare Programmes will be provided with afternoon tea at approximately 3.15pm each day. Afternoon tea will include sandwiches on wholemeal bread, fresh fruit and water. Children that are still on the programme at 4.45pm will be provided with snacks such as muesli bars, crackers, cookies and fresh fruit to keep them going.

Holiday Programmes

Our Holiday Programmes focus on giving children aged between 5 and 13 the opportunity to do things they enjoy in a safe, supportive and encouraging environment. Kelly Club programmes are packed with variety to entertain and inspire children. Each Holiday Programme is full of exciting activities and trips that will guarantee your children have a great time!
