Our school Mini Vinnies recruited new members this half term. We celebrated by receiving a lovely gift from our friends at Hadrian’s House Care Home, who we work closely with throughout the year.
See – Think – Do
Our Mini Vinnie Team are ready to make a difference.
As a school we have decided to try and raise money for CAFOD to help all the people in the world who aren’t as fortunate as we are and don’t have the things we take for granted. A man from CAFOD visited school and told us that the Amazon rainforest is being destroyed and people are losing their homes. He said one football pitch of rainforest is lost a minute which is bad for the rainforest and the climate. Did you know that 2p can vaccinate 10 children against life threatening diseases? 20p to 50p will buy a mosquito net to keep children safe from malaria and if you have £1 or £2 it can help provide clean water for families. Please help those who are less fortunate. We will have a collection box in the office, please give what you can.

Throughout the month of October, our Mini Vinnies are praying a decade of the Rosary every day at lunchtime. Everyone is welcome to join in.This week many children have taken the opportunity to pray.
The month of October each year is dedicated to the Holy Rosary. The feast day of Our Lady of the Rosary is celebrated on October 7th
A group of Mini Vinnies visited Hadrian House last Friday to help residents reply to the Postcards of Kindness which they received. The residents and the children really enjoyed each other’s company.
Postcards of Kindness is a wonderful project where people have the chance to send holiday postcards to care home residents giving them wonderful messages to read from across the world.
Thank you to everyone who came and supported Macmillan Cancer on Friday afternoon. Mini Vinnies made cakes and invited two ladies from Hadrian House Care Home to join us. A total of £185 was raised.
