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.
