Xmas Parade Float 2016

Well done to the Vogeltown Home and School for the wonderful float that was put together for the New Plymouth Xmas parade over the weekend. Big thanks to Mr G and Mr Craig Harrison for getting the marquee to fit on the truck, thanks to Chris Dost for getting the truck and driving it so well! Thanks to Geneieve Martin for organising the event and thanks to all the parents and kids for the support and laughs we had on the float.

As a result of all the hard work, the Vogeltown float won the ‘Community Award’ for the best community float! Well done VS! Here are some shots:

This week we have the annual Vogeltown Hangi. It is such a great event! Mr Lancaster and Mrs Sleep are working hard to make it another great success.

We are after some extra foodstuffs for the hangi, so if you can provide any of the following, please bring them in.

We will be lifting the hangi at 11.30am and getting ready to eat by 12.30pm. We will be eating in our whanau’s.



A big thank you to Mr George who has run the outdoors bungee over the last 3 weeks! The kids have been fishing at Urenui river, Walked along the Whitecliff and today the group climbed to the top of Paritutu!

A big thanks also to all the parents who have helped transport, be team leaders and look after our awesome crew! Here are some photos from today:
