Over the festive season, the Mini-Vinnies brought the joy of Christmas to our local community by regaling our neighbours with a repertoire of traditional Christmas carols. Our jolly carollers sang at ASDA, at Walker Park's YMCA cafe, at a local Residential Home and at our own school gates - much to the delight of their audiences.
Additionally, our caring Mini-Vinnies raised money for charity by holding raffles at the school Christmas performances. In total, the children raised over £300 for their good causes this Christmas.
On Thursday 24th October, our Year 5 pupils officially became ‘Mini Vinnies’. The children took part in an initiation ceremony led by Mr Willcock (who is the regional Mini Vinnies coordinator and also, as it happens, the school’s Chair of Governors). Many of the children’s parents attended the ceremony and stayed for tea and biscuits afterwards.
