Mini Vinnies Lent assembly and activities
During Lent, our Mini Vinnies have worked together to plan an Act of Worship for each Key stage focusing on The Good Samaritan and linking this to Catholic Social Teaching of Human Dignity, the Common Good and Preferential Option for the Poor. The activities ranged from role play to discussing how we support our local community.

Our Mini Vinnies group have identified that there a many problems on Sheldon Road. Our school have addressed this in our School Newsletter and we feel that now we need to get our local MP involved. We worked together to look at the problem and possible solutions in the hope that we are listened to. Using the CST of Distributive Justice and Promoting Peace we are working to serve our children, our neighbourhood and the safety of all. Here is a draft of our letter.

Our Mini Vinnies group have ben discussing our local community and who we can help.
