They say it's starting to look a lot like Christmas at Wellington Airport. The reason it looks like Christmas is the Christmas trees that are decorated with the baubles that we and children from other Kids Can Schools decorated.
Whaea Deb saw them at the airport and said they look pretty stunning.
Kids Can asked if a few children could each decorate a Christmas Bauble for a very special tree at Wellington Airport. Whaea Lynda worked with some children from Rooms 1, 2 and 3. Don't they look beautiful! Well done!!
Every year one of the youngest children at school gets to help the oldest child lay a wreath for Armistice Day. This year it was Joe. Can you see Joe? He is in the blue top, standing next to Xavier. They did a great job of laying the wreath.
A big thank you to Matua Rob for asking Ma'a Nonu to come to Russell School and a BIG, BIG thank you to Ma'a for coming to school and the yummy sausages that he brought. We loved doing the haka with you Ma'a. Ma'a gave Mokotupu his prize for returning his newsletter and he gave each class a football. Te Huaki who was 'Teacher of the Day" went up to get the ball for our class. We love playing with our new ball. Thanks Ma'a we loved having you at Russell School.
