Things to say
Breathe in like you are smelling a flower, breathe out like you are blowing out birthday candles
Arms up and breathe in, arms down and breathe out

KIA ORA VS WHANAU, FROM MR O
Welcome to the end of week 3 of Term 2 2020. This week has been a busy week at school here with plans for all our property projects going ahead once (and if) we move to level 2 - see below for these exciting projects.
At school we have had our awesome Teacher Associates and even Batman freshening up the school ready for the kids return! It is amazing what a 'lick' of paint can do for the school! Thanks team!
I have sent out a community email, it is available on 'Skool Loop' app and on facebook, updating everyone about what level 2 might look like should we move there soon. If you have not seen it, then click on the link below.
I will update everyone as soon as we know what is happening over the next couple of days. Please also see our online assembly for Week 4 on the link below.

VOGELTOWN SCHOOL BUILDING PROJECTS
We have some massive building projects happening at Vogeltown School planned for the next 2 - 5 years. These projects have taken a lot of planning, and it is great to see these still going ahead.
Some of these projects going ahead include:
1) New artificial turf covering the senior school front court
2) A new double modular classroom being built at the junior school (a double of the new room we have at the senior school)
Over the next 2 years, we have the following projects ready to go:
1) Roofing projects on both school sites
2) Decking and new double doors in front of the rooms at the senior school
3) Replacing the covered walkway roofs around the senior school
4) Modernising the junior school classrooms - double sliding glass doors between rooms
5) Replacing some fencing
6) Replacing the fire alarm system at the junior school
Over the next 5 years, we have the following projects:
1) Junior school decking in front of the classrooms (where the covered shelters are now)
2) Junior school inside corridor and classroom changes - modernising inside.
Once we have some visual plans, we will share them with you!
