What's on @ Russley

Dear parents and whānau

Yesterday, Russley School was advised by the Ministry of Education (MoE) of its decision to fully rebuild our school.

Prior to the fire in September this year, Russley School had already begun planning for a school redevelopment project. This recent decision ensures all facilities will now be built entirely new, excluding the hall complex.

No further details are available at this time. We expect that the necessary planning will start early in 2020. As plans are released we will update you.

This is a fantastic opportunity to invest in the future of Russley School and we acknowledge and thank the Minister of Education, Chris Hipkins, and the MoE's decision in this regard.

Russley School has created a group entry for next year’s Weet-Bix TRYathlon in Christchurch on Sunday 23rd February. Linking your own entry to our school group will give students and the school a great chance to win prizes.

The event is designed to give kids of any ability a chance to give triathlon a TRY. It is a rewarding and fun day out for families. Participants need to be aged 7-15 years old on event day, and can compete as an individual or a duo. 

Entries are now open for the 2020 Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon Christchurch to be held at Jellie Park, Burnside. We have created a school group which you can join when you enter your child online here.
