Best Graduation Ever!

On Wednesday the 12th of  December the year 6s had their graduation. Brandon and Ebenezer welcomed us into the hall. When we got into the hall Whaea Sose started to say a speech. After her speech she asked Margaret from Pataka to come and say a speech about the new hall mural.Then it was time for her to hand out the trophy for the best art in Russell School and it was for Colleen. Next we sang 'Hall a fame', our teacher said it was the best we had ever done it.Then it was time for the next trophy. After that we sang some of our Russell School songs. Then it was time for more trophies. Do you know what I was scared of ? I was scared when Ben and I went to say our speech because Ben had a longer speech then me and I had a short speech that was so EMBRACING!!! But I was still proud of myself and Ben because we did a great job and we were supported by our classmates. We finished by doing the loudest haka you ever heard.

New H.E.A.R.T mural

The Human Rights Commission has helped Russell School create it's new H.E.A.R.T mural.

In Room 9 we made our own designs with tape for the hall mural. First we got a circle, then we put painters green tape on the circles for patterns. After that we put on our old t-shirts because there was acrylic paint to paint the circles. . By Vinley

Road Patrols trip

On the 6th of December the road petrolers went to the Aquatic Center to thank them for their hard work. First we went to the pools, we got changed and then went for a swim. But when Molly and I got in the pool a man told us we can`t swim in singlets. He said we can go and get a shirt from the counter, but the shirts were a dollar each! So we were stuck we had no money on us, we asked Kaiona and he gave us 2 dollars to hire the t shirts. We went in the pools and we were about to go to the slide but it said SLIDE CLOSED. After that we went to play some games. We played basketball.A boy was going to throw the ball to the teacher, but I caught the ball and we got a goal! The funniest thing was when I defended a teacher that was taller then me.
