Today we had to re-plant our centenary tree. The last one got trampled and died We decided to get a Titoki tree (or Alectryon excelsus).
Here are the Greenies planting it in to the ground. Lets hope this one lasts! Mr Sole is going to put a fence around this tree, so hopefully in 100 years time, when VS is 200, this tree will still be here.
The tradition that begun in 2006 (yes it is the 10th year this year) of the Carrington Cup continued yesterday with a battle against Central School (the other end of Carrington Road) in Rugby, Football and Netball.
The results were not good for Vogeltown, but the games were played in great spirits! Well done to all the VS kids who represented the school with pride, a positive attitude and showed Central the ‘Vogeltown way’. Well done!!
We are so lucky at Vogeltown to have a link and relationship with such a great man as Bill Clarkson. Today we did propagation with Bill and Rm 9 worked hard to propagate all the Titoki plantings that were only seeds last year! Here is Bill with Corban and his Titoki seedling! Thanks Bill for all you do for our school!
