Wow, a whole new decade is about to begin and we at Vogeltown are ready to roll! We have been really lucky with the weather to get the school pool painted and ready for another season. We will be opening this up for public use in week 1 of the term – see the office for ‘pool user agreement’ and to pay the $45 user charge.
A big thanks to Mr George, Mr Seed (Mrs Seed’s husband) Mr Ransfield, Mrs Apperley (Mr Ransfield’s partner) and Ms Pretty for giving up your time to paint the pool it looks AWESOME! See the photo below
As we did last year, Vogeltown and Bell Block school were the co-hosts of the North Taranaki Rippa Rugby tournament! It was another awesome day, supported by Jack Kirifi and the TRFU team, NPBHS boys who were the refs, the Vogeltown Home and School who provided a BBQ and the awesome students from 19 different schools, involving 640 kids! A big thanks to Mr Stirling for sorting teams, taking practices and being awesome! Thanks for all the support from the sidelines too. Here are some photos of the event.
At Vogeltown we promote healthy eating. We promote water for drinking (no fizzy drinks) and make sure we hydrate during the day with our drink bottles in the class.
We are lucky to have a very small number of students who do not have any lunch – and we can provide for them. However we have a big number of students who have lunchboxes crammed with lots of packets of food – of which very little is healthy. To keep it simple and affordable, we have come up with ‘The ideal healthy Vogeltown lunchbox’. (See the picture below) it does not need to be processed or expensive.
Remember we are a ‘PACK IN, PACK OUT’ school so all packaging brought to school goes home as well. Thanks for helping us make Vogeltown a health(ier) and tidier community school.
