St Dominic Catholic Primary

If we live by truth and in love, we shall grow in Christ

Mini Vinnies

'Mini Vinnies’ is a St Vincent de Paul Group in a Primary School. It is a group of young people aged 7-11 who get together, organise and talk about helping others in need within their school community and beyond. 

Within our school, our Mini Vinnies meet regularly with Mrs Myers to discuss how they can positively impact on the Catholic life of the school.


2019 - 2021 Projects

  • In September 2019, the team organised a Sponsored Run to raise money for Spotlight on Africa and our school.
  • In January 2020, our Mini Vinnies spent their lunch times boxing up books. We donated them to the Assumption Alumnae Association which supports eight mission schools in the Philippines. 
  • In December 2020, our Mini Vinnies organised #heartsforhomes within school.
  • Summer 2021 - Now that we are all back in school, the Mini Vinnies have been busy tidying up our Prayer Garden. Donations of plants would be much appreciated - please contact the school office and ask for Mrs Myers.
