Barkston Ash Catholic Primary School

Mini Vinnies


Mini-Vinnies are a group who turn concern into action. They see who needs help, think how they can help and go into action to help others.

Our selected Mini-Vinnie committee members are then a member of the St Vincent de Paul society for life. This includes being a Mini-Vinnie throughout their time at Barkston Ash Catholic Primary School.  Being a Mini-Vinnie is a big commitment; there is a thorough recruitment process annually in school.  The Mini-Vinnies meet regularly and discuss ways in which they can help and serve others. 


Our caring Mini Vinnies are:


Year 3- Cesca, Daiya, Elyse, Matthew, Morgan, Ted and Toby.

Year 4- Bradley, Chloe, Dominic, Lacey, Max A and Tai.

Year 5- Eva F, Georgie, James B, Kitty, Molly and Noah.

Year 6- India, Isla, Oliver B (Mini-Vinnies Leaders)
