Can you help us?

As part of our studies of Sustainability we are collecting milk bottle and drink bottle tops.
We want to make an art project.

Look at this amazing art created with bottle tops.

We hope we can make something bright and colourful too!

 Watch this space.

Bike skills

On Friday some great people came to Russell School and taught bike skills.

Telele, Cordeius, Ah Ba and Ajay had lots of fun and learnt a lot.

Thanks Whaea Laura for organising it!

Sun Smart

We are sun smart at Russell School.

In the summer we wear hats at morning tea and lunchtime.

Hasn't Harmony got a great hat! Not only does it keep the sun off her face, it looks beautiful too.
