KIA ORA WHANAU, FROM MR O
What an awesome night we had last night at the Basketball! A huge thanks to all the parents and supporters who went to the basketball last night. We had an amazing group of kids and a wonderful choreographer/coach - Mrs Seed! Well done team, what a great way to end the term.
When we look back over the term we have certainly been involved in a lot of activities, experiences and of course learning. Just a brief mention of these activities:
Rippa Rugby, Puke Ariki visits, Interschool exchanges (four of them in fact), Support Staff Day, Pink Shirt Day, Young Leaders visit to Palmerston North, Mathathon, BOT nominations & elections, AWE swim safe, Matariki week - including our Hangi and Yr 6 sleep over, Arbor Day with Bill, Lets go days, Whanau gumboot throw, Whanau Tug o war, Whanau mid winter swim and last night the winners of the Jump Jam competition! Whew, what an awesome term!
A huge thanks to all parents, caregivers, coaches, whanau who have helped us out this term - we really do appreciate your help!
Have a safe two weeks of holiday. Spend some quality time with your family and whanau. Make sure you get out and enjoy some of what our great region has to offer, turn off the wifi for a couple of days and get out the board games.
WE HAVE OFFICIALLY TURNED 100!
To celebrate such a milestone, we had our mid-winter swim on Monday and we also shouted everyone an ice cream! Big thanks to Vogeltown Countdown who donated the ice cream, cones and sprinkles all for free!

VOGELTOWN HOME AND SCHOOL WHANAU
Kia ora koutou Vogeltown whanau
The home and school friends met this week and we are excited to announce that we are donating over $7,000.00 to the school towards the purchase of bark for the senior/middle playground and a whopping $3000 towards the scooter/bike track concrete path at the Junior School. We are also purchasing more sports uniforms to replace lost and additional tops. Without the support of our families, staff and volunteers, this would not happen so thank you to each and every one of you!
Special thanks to Jennie for co-ordinating the lunch fundraiser for us and also to her helpers, Jane, Jessie and Fay. Great work ladies! See below for the lunch order form for next week.
Our teachers are very keen to organise a Lego Club at school where our students can get busy with their imaginations and build some amazing things creations. If you have any Lego that is not being used and you are willing to donate to the school, please bring into the school offices please.
The best way to touch base with the Home and School whanau is to send an email to email@example.com
