Mike Royles from the St Vincent de Paul society talked to the children last week about becoming Mini Vinnies. Mini Vinnies are junior members of the society and the School Council on behalf of the pupils have decided that they should very much like to sign up and join. With a motto of ‘see, think, do’ we feel this very much fits with our school Mission Statement and links with St Joseph’s Parish. Our start-up kit has been ordered and a special assembly will be planned to launch the group later this term. All children at the school will automatically become Mini Vinnie members with a central committee who are elected to their positions leading and helping with co-ordination. For the remainder of this term, we will be running our traditional school council alongside the newly formed Mini Vinnies. Voting day for candidates hoping to join the committee will be 7th May and campaigning will begin after Miss Buxton’s assembly on 1st May.
