Here at Holy Family we really enjoying the benefits of having Mini Vinnies in school. Our Mini Vinnies organise and taken part in lots of exciting events.
Our Mini-Vinnies and Live Simply children have been working hard to make our prayer garden a more spiritual place for reflection to deepen our faith. They have decorated prayer stones of our school virtues and quotes from scripture to place around the outside for all to use during prayer sessions and worships.
Thank you Mrs Burrow for helping us!
