KIA ORA WHANAU, FROM MR O
It has been great to walk around and witness the awesome learning that is happening in the rooms! The kids at Vogeltown are so lucky to have such dedicated and creative teachers planning great units of work and interesting lessons! Tu Meke Vogeltown Kaiako!
Exciting times ahead for Vogeltown school next week when we have our new classroom arriving on three trucks and craned in to place. It is not often that a school is lucky enough to acquire a new classroom and we are certainly looking forward to having it.
The new classroom will help us control our class numbers a bit better. We will be re-numbering the classrooms on the senior side once we have the final sign-off for this room.
If you are around on Tuesday, come down and have a look - we will be capturing the delivery in some time lapse and we will share it with the community.
Having just done the New Plymouth Girls High orientation, I can not stress enough how important it is to go and visit the school your Year 6 child may be attending next year. The evenings are worthwhile and you get a great insight to the school and what each school offers. The Year 7 open nights at Highlands and Devon are:
Highlands Intermediate 8 August at 6.30pm is the Parent evening
30 August Enrolments close for Out of Zone students
9 September Ballot will take place if required.
Devon Intermediate 29 August at 7.00pm is the Parent evening
All completed forms for Devon and Highlands to be returned to their offices'.
KIDS CORNER - WRITING FROM RM 4
My monster is blobby and purple. He has green ears that are as green as the grass. His teeth are as sharp as the fangs of a vampire bat. He has big googly eyes. He can be nocturnal; that means he is awake at night and sleeps during the day. His name is Blobby.
By Jaela Hannah
My dragon’s name is Tombwonder. He lives in a damp, mysterious cave. His favourite food is people. His tongue is slimy like slime. He can tell only one joke. He is nocturnal and he hunts when the moon is full.
By Thomas Flitcroft
