IMG_6774Hot on the back of a number of wonderful individual sporting successes, we now have another major trophy in our cupboard -the Primary A Grade cricket trophy! Wow, congratulations boys for what has been an amazing season for you.  We can see why your coach Jason is so proud of you all.  Not only have you been tremendous ‘sports’ (playing fair and not getting ugly!) but you have responded to his coaching and been very focused. Tino pai rawa! All the best with your winter sports codes.

After our highest ever participation in competitive length races at the Russell Street Swimming Sports our best year 5 and 6 swimmers went on to represent us in the Northern School Cluster swimming event held at Freyberg Pool.
This team of 18 children represented us exceptionally well competing in all events with all children making finals and achieving our best ever results (1st  x 9, 2nd x 7, 3rd x 3, 4th x 2, 5th x 2) And with results like that we also won the overall year 5/6 points trophy.

Congratulations to the team who represented Russell Street School at the Manawatu Triathlon Club Interschool Competition last week.

Some outstanding results for all, with all of the team coming in the first 26 places for their event.

Well done especially to Jaiden Meyer who placed 3rd overall in the Year 6 Boys event and Bella Ives who placed 1st overall in the year 6 girls.

Thank you to all the parents who helped transport and cheer the team on at the event. Way to go everyone!
