After months of research, design and planning, and construction, our Vogeltown Flagpole Bungee Group were present for the official unveiling of our amazing flagpoles (one at the junior and one at the senior sites). Well done Mrs Parker and the bungee group, these flagpoles represent the VS Way!

As part of our 99th birthday celebrations, we held a disco in the hall which was decorated with a ‘happy birthday’ theme. The children were invited to bring along a handmade card to the school as their ticket in, and we had glow accessories for sale too. It was a fantastic night. Thank you to the Home & School team who organised another successful event for our school community.

This week the senior syndicate walked down the Te Henui Walkway to East End on the lookout for bridges of all shapes, sizes, and construction as part of their term topic. Do you know how many bridges there are along the track? Did you know that Ara Puawhai means ‘pathway of enlightenment’? That’s certainly what the journey was all about for these amazing students!
