On Wednesday 7th of March, we had our Ranginui Swimming Sports event at the Lido an what a day it was too! Some amazing swimming was on show, as well as so many examples of our year long school kaupapa of Whakawhanaungatanga being displayed too, which was truly fantastic to see!
The addition of the House Showcase this year to get everybody in the pool regardless of their swimming ability was well received. Thanks to all the parents who showed up to support and a special thanks to Jared, Marnie, Gretchen and Jen who helped time the events.
Teachers always have their eyes peeled for kids upholding our school values and recognised these kids for doing just that: Yasmine Eltanikhy; for helping out a friend who needed some togs and fast. Alessandra Bedford, Eva Mason and Libby Sloan for supporting Alice with her swimming. Cullen Byrne; who was consistently cheering and supporting his house. Ka mau te wehi koutou!
Here are the results for the day and the team that will go off to represent Russell Street School at the Northern Cluster Swimming Sports at the Freyberg Pools on Thursday 29th March.
Prizegiving for the Swimming Sports will be on Monday 19th March at 9am.
