The Mini Vinnie Pledge

As a member of Mini Vinnies, I promise to make a difference in my world by:

• Caring for, respecting and loving myself;

• Strengthening my friendship with Jesus by praying each day and talking to others about him;

• Caring for others in my school and community by being a friend to those who are alone, in need or in trouble;

• Contributing to the happiness of my family through my help, respect, consideration, joy and kindness;

• Caring for, appreciating and enjoying God’s creation: the environment;

• Treating others the way I would like them to treat me

 

Mini Vinnies Mission  2023-2024

We began our new term of office by completing some Advent task. We organised a reverse advent calendar with donations going to the SVP Food Bank and the Giana Baby Bank project. Thank you to our school community for supporting this, and for the generous donations.

We also took the opportunity to share our mission with those in need in our community at Christmas time. We took a visit to Mulgrave House to visit the residents and sing a few Christmas songs. Many of our members also made Christmas cards to share with the residents.
