Working Together

Following our successful Christmas Shoebox campaign, the Mini Vinnies at St. Vincent's Altrincham are also having a very busy Lent. Firstly, we have been leading a "Fairtrade fortnight" campaign across the school; building awareness about Fairtrade issues like better prices, decent working conditions and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers. The whole school, along with members of the parish SVP will be enjoying Fairtrade breaktime together to sample how good the products taste.
Closer to home, we have been knitting Easter chicks to sell in order to raise funds for a local children's hospice. This has been a great way to get both parents and grandparents involved in knitting for a worthy cause. The chicks are steadily multiplying and the family are now a rainbow of colours - they will be sold after Sunday morning mass throughout Lent.

A Busy Autumn Term at CCJS

The Mini Vinnies at Cheadle Catholic Junior School have been particularly busy in the last few weeks. Recently we held the Commissioning Assembly for this year and we were delighted to commission 21 Year 5 and Year 6 pupils this year to our very successful group. The ceremony was held as part of an Upper School Assembly, which meant that for the first time we could invite parents of the children involved to be present and we were delighted with how many were able to join us.
