This Wednesday Rei Hendry was at Russell Street School inspiring us with her ideas, knowledge and skills. We had a whole day of creating miniature works of art using clay.

Thanks to the parents and family members who came along and joined in the great experiences. Click here to see the full set of images. You can see we have many emerging artists and this experience has allowed the children’s artistic creativity to develop.

What a fun day of creating and exploring this art medium.

Today I had the privilege of heading to the Esplanade to catch 5 RSS teams giving their all in their second to last game of summer hockey. Two of our teams were even playing each other! I was so impressed by the skill and determination shown on the turf. It was definitely not easy in the heat, and with such a large area to cover. Many of our year 3′s are used to playing on just half a turf but they have definitely risen to the challenge. I felt incredibly proud to be part of our RSS community. Parents and whanau offered many words of encouragement from the side and were on stand by with water bottles and oranges for half time. I wasn’t able to catch all of the scores but I know there were some very close games. I look forward to seeing more sport throughout the year, it sure is exciting to see our Catch Me If You Can skills coming to the fore. Lots of driving, dodging, and running into space. Awesome work guys! (by Sonita,  Sensational 7)
