KIA ORA WHANAU, FROM MR O
We had a great sports exchange against Welbourn school on Thursday. Vogeltown School were the hosts and all the kids did an amazing job. The Welbourn kids were great opponents and the results certainly favoured them. See the captains recounts below.
The Vogeltown Board of Trustee election finishes today. We will let you know who the new Vogeltown Board will be next week. Thanks to everyone who voted in the election.
Next week we have our annual hangi and Yr 6 sleep over. If you have any food to donate to our hangi, then please drop it in the boxes on either side of the road. The food we eat at our hangi is all donated, so the more we get donated the more we can eat! See below for the Hangi update
In two weeks time you will be receiving a mid year report on your child. This reports on your child's key competencies at school. It will come home with your child in an envelope. We will not have any learning conferences for these reports, however, if you have any concerns raised in these reports, then please arrange a time to meet with your child's teacher. Progress reports, like we had in Term 1, will come out midway through Term 3 after we have done our progress assessments.
27 June - vs Woodleigh School (at VS) Games start 11.45am
Highlands Intermediate Waharoa opening
The waharoa has lots of links to past, present and future kids of Highlands and also links with the Huatoki and Te Henui rivers.
If you get a chance, go and have walk through the school to view it, it is a great piece of work!
It is that time of year again and we are going to celebrate Puanga by having our annual hangi. Matariki and Puanga are a set of stars that the early Maori people used to spot to mark the start of the Maori new year. When you could see the stars you knew it was the new year beginning. In Taranaki and Whanganui we use the word Puanga as we cannot fully see the set of stars called Matariki.
Our school hangi will be a way of marking this event and celebrating the significance of Puanga. The story of Puanga (Matariki) can be found here: http://www.puanga.org.nz/pages/puanga.php.
To make the day a huge success, we ask our community for donations and these are then used for everyone to have lunch on the day. If you are able to donate anything, please bring it to the junior or senior office(s).
Donations in include:
40+ Chickens, Beef roasts, Pork roasts, 60 kg Spuds, 50kg Kumara, 5 kg Parsnips, 20 Pumpkins, 15 kg Carrots, 10 Cabbages.
Tu Meke whanau.
Thanks, Mr Mac.
Kia Ora whanau
At present we have 21 ukuleles at Vogeltown School. There are 35 Senior children that would like to join our ukulele club for 2019. If you have a spare uke or 2 lying around at home, that you haven’t used for a while, maybe you could donate it to our school. It would be very much appreciated.
