Mini Vinnies

Would you like to fill a shoebox?

Our Mini Vinnies have been encouraging everyone to fill a shoebox for families living in poverty in Eastern Europe.

They have collected hats, toys and other items and have been selling them for 20p on the yard after school, to help with the cost of filling a shoebox.

If you can help, please bring your wrapped, packed and sealed shoebox into school with  two £1 coins attached by Monday 29th October, the first week back after half term.

Thank you

 

Mini Vinnies Celebration

This week in school we held a beautiful Mini Vinnies commissioning ceremony led by Mr Michael Willcock. The children were presented with certificates and badges to recognise their commitment to helping others both locally and around the world. This ceremony was a wonderful way to welcome our new Mini Vinnies from Year 4 and 5.

See – Think – Do

Our Mini Vinnies prepared and delivered an assembly in preparation for the new school year ahead. The Mini Vinnies outlined their action plan for the year and explained just what it’s like to be a Mini Vinnie. The children also explained how others can join this fantastic group and become Mini Vinnies.

Rosary beads made by Mini Vinnies

Mini Vinnies have been making rosary beads to sell during the Month of May. They will be available from the School office for 50p.

The beads represent one decade of the Rosary, with a coloured bead next to the cross for the “Our Father”, 10 beads of the same colour for the “Hail Mary’s”  and a bead at the end for the “Glory Be”. Each decade will be in its own pouch along with a copy of the prayers.

All money raised will be donated to charity so please come along and buy one!
