We were very lucky to have 2 of our teams make the semi finals for the interschool sports! We had our rugby team make the semi against Fitzroy school and our netball girls make the semi against Bell Block School. Unfortunately both teams lost their games, however we are still so proud of their efforts, skills and sportsmanship – great Vogeltowners!
