Meet our Mini Vinnies
Our Mini Vinnies are a group of children following in the footsteps of St. Vincent de Paul. They lead our school in fighting social injustice and tackling poverty. They lead our pupil voice and form part of our RRSA steering group.
"Turning Concern into Action"
The Mini Vinnies meet regularly to discuss how we can improve our environment, engage with the local community and ensure all the children at English Martyrs' school are aware of their rights and how the duty bearers (adults) can uphold these rights.
"I want to help others be safe."
"I want to help others to follow the right path."
"I want to help others live through our school virtues."
"I want to make sure we have the right to speak out."
"I want to help people who are lonely."
"I want to teach others to show kindness."
"I want to make sure we all respect each other's rights."
We are Eco Warriors!
We know that it is our duty to look after our planet and everyone who lives on it therefore we work hard to keep our community clean and tidy.
We have regular groups of children who go out and clean up the pavements and roads around our school and English Martyrs' Church. We also try to keep our local doctor's surgery grounds free from litter.
The Mini Vinnies have been taking suggestions on what equipment the pupils would like in their playgrounds. They had lots of ideas and they then made a shortlist for Mrs Harper. Mrs Harper held a meeting with the Mini Vinnies to discuss how we can improve our playgrounds for the pupils of English Martyrs'. We can't wait to see the finished project!
