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.
