The Mini Vinnies have been turning their concern into action! We have learnt about how the rainforest is being destroyed to get Palm Oil to go in everyday products. We learnt about an orangutan called Rang-Tan whose habitat was being destroyed by deforestation in the rainforest. We have now written campaign letters to the companies to let them know our concerns.
Every half term, the Mini Vinnies lead the Merit assembly to introduce the Virtues to the school.
Ribbons for Ukraine April 2022
Thank you so much to everyone who purchased a ribbon that the Year 3 Mini Vinnies made! We were able to raise £53.30!!!! Thank you so much for your generosity and we hope our donation will go towards helping those in need. Thank you!
Our Mini Vinnies decided that they wanted to help others by sorting out lots of the uniform and anything with no names on could be taken to help others who need more uniform!

“I really like being a Mini Vinnie because I want to make a change for the whole world and to be beside Jesus. In my heart, I feel really proud of myself.”
Mini Vinnies truly turn concern into action as they use the simple formula of ‘see, think, do’ to find people in need and help them. They might help by:
Education and awareness. Becoming aware of some of the community’s social ills and knowing that although the world is beautiful, there are always ways to make it a bit better.
Formation. This a chance for Mini Vinnies to participate in spiritual activities, personal development and discussions, and to develop a real understanding of the world.
Community service and fundraising. ‘Doing’ means supporting the SSVP in its good works, and for the children to do something about the issues that they have seen, thought about or discussed.
