‘Mini Vinnies’ is a St Vincent de Paul Group in a Primary School. It is a group of young people in a Primary School who get together, organise and talk about helping others in need within their school community and beyond. What makes Mini Vinnies such a valuable experience for the children who are part of it, is the change it makes in school communities. Mini Vinnies’ groups usually meet once a week or fortnight during lunchtime and are run by members of staff.
‘As ‘Mini Vinnies’, the children have their own ‘treasured’ Prayer, Pledge and Badge, a dedicated website and a range of bright and colourful documents which guide them in their formative steps – helping and enabling them to become in every sense, young Vincentians – or ‘Mini Vinnies’
