Mini Vinnies

The St Rita's Mini Vinnies Team is a group of students from Years 5 to 6‚Äč who work together to help those in need within our school and local community. By participating in the St Rita's Mini Vinnies Team, students are introduced to social justice issues, the St Vincent de Paul Society and living faith through positive action.

The two main goals of St Rita's Mini Vinnies are to:

  • Co-ordinate our school's participation in social justice projects
  • Organise community-building events that bring our school and parish closer together

The St Rita's Mini Vinnies Team have a positive relationship with the St Rita's Parish St Vincent de Paul Conference. The students and parishioners meet regularly and work in partnership on some projects. The wisdom, support and guidance offered by the parishoners, and the youth, enthusiasm and vitality offered by the students, makes for a great working relationship and positive action between the groups.
