About

 

Russell Street School is centered in the Hospital area of Palmerston North. Apart from the commercial properties along Tremaine Avenue and the Hospital, the school is the largest building and the only open green area available for recreation.

Physically the school is unique. Most buildings have been extensively remodelled. The main block is villa styled. It is situated on a split level site with substantial all weather playing areas in the front of the school.

The school and grounds are used extensively by the public. Apart from the classroom spaces there are a range of other facilities available for school and the public to use, including the learning resource centre (hub/library), hall, swimming pool, playground, scooter track and staffroom.
