Kia ora e te whānau,

Our annual Yr 6 graduation assembly will be held on Thursday December the 12th at Russell Street School from 1.15pm – 3:00pm. We will be farewelling our Year 6 students and celebrating their contributions to the Russell Street School whānau and the fantastic year of learning we have all shared.

Following the graduation assembly we will be having a shared afternoon tea for the Year 6 students, parents and adults involved in supporting the education of our students. Could you please bring a plate of kai (food) to share. This year, each Year 6 student will be responsible for bringing a plate of kai to share. We would like the year 6’s in Rm 6 to bring something sweet, the Year 6’s in Rm 7 to bring a hot savoury item (we will heat the food here) and the year 6’s in Poutokomanawa to bring a cold savoury item e.g. cheese crackers, fruits and veg. There will be tables set up in the staffroom and on the deck for you to put your plates on when you arrive. You are invited to take your child directly from Russell Street at the conclusion of the afternoon tea.

We are grateful to the Supporters’ Club who have generously offered their services to supporting us with set up of food on the day. To help us plan for the number attending, please complete and return the slip below to your child’s teacher by Thursday December 5th.  

Come along and help us celebrate and farewell the Year 6 students.  We look forward to your attendance.

Ngā mihi nui,

Paityn and Kali (Yr 6 Food Crew), Daniela and Zoe (Yr 6 Organisation Crew)
