A steady increase in the school roll over the last five years has meant Vogeltown School‘s office block needed an update.
The office block is currently undergoing a $35,000 interior and exterior upgrade which was started in the school holidays.
Principal Mark Luff said the roll used to be around 230 and currently sits at 270.
“Just today we’ve had six enrolments,” he said.
The “hub” of the school was last revamped in 1998 and Mr Luff said it was now being brought in line with other school developments.
“We also have the centenary coming up in 2015 so we want to make sure the school is looking all tidy,” he said.
Work on the office interior is half done but work on the outside of the building was scheduled for a later date.
Pupils Megan Schwank, 9, Germaine Grewel,9, and Finn Heard,10, got a surprise as they came into the new office area yesterday.
“It looks awesome,” said Finn.
