Principal Appointment

The Board of Trustees is pleased to welcome Mr Jeremy Ogle in the role as our new Principal at the beginning of Term 2.  Jeremy comes to us from Highlands Intermediate with a wealth of leadership and teaching experience behind him. His  desire to continue the great progress Vogeltown has achieved, left as a legacy by our previous principal Mark Luff is evident when talking to him.  He values holistic learning as we do.  We trust you, as our school community, will join us in making Jeremy feel right at home.  When you see him helping our road patrollers, at the gate or in the classroom, don’t be shy in saying hello – that’s the VS Way!

This photo is from 1920 – these children would have seen the original school building being built!  We have currently at Vogeltown a forth generation student whose great- grandparent is in this photo!  That’s what makes our school so wonderful – seeing parents bringing their own children here.

Our centenary is coming up on Labour Weekend this year so if you attended Vogeltown School you are welcome to join us for the celebrations.  Click here to see the latest information or to contact the centenary committee.
