Today we had a very special end of term assembly! We all dressed up in our black gears for #projectblackout, we raised $1050 for the Wilmshurst whanau, we had our classes share artwork, stitching and facts, we had the Class Reps take the assembly, we had Batman and then we Mark Armstrong from ‘The Slacks’ perform.
What an awesome way to end the term! See the photos and video below – we even had one of our students interview Mark!!
Here is the video interview that Theo did with Mark:
We have had a week of ‘Try’athlons at Vogeltown this week.
We began with the ‘Whanau Tryathlon, expertly organised by Mr Ransfield! We had so much fun with teams consisting of one junior, one middle and one senior. each person in the team ran (junior), swam (middle) and biked (senior). Awesome day whanau!!
We then had the syndicate tryathlons on Thursday, followed by the Kindy tryathlon on Friday! Whew, what a week!!
Thanks to the parents and caregivers for coming along and supporting the kids.
What an awesome adventure we had! We are currently studying ‘Ako o te wai’ which is the study of water. The Middle and Senior Syndicate are studying the Huatoki River and the Juniors are looking at the Rocky Shore.
We left school on buses (all 360 of us) to the Puke Ariki landing where we looked at the Huatoki river that runs past our school and comes out at the Sea.
We then walked to Ngamotu Beach. Unfortuantely when we got there it rained so we had to come home! But that is what adventures are all about!! Well done whanau!
