Napier/Hastings Young Vinnies

At St Patricks, Napier, we visited the Edu-Kids childcare centre which is next door to the school. It's a great chance for the bigger kids to see what goes on right next door to them. Some of the Vinnies got to show off their little brothers and sisters. Those about to start school got a chance to meet with older children they may see soon.

The Vinnies spent last term making felt and turning them into mobiles to give away. They were much admired.

In Waipukarau at St Josephs School we are preparing on how to deal with people with differences. Lesson include role play about brain injury in preparation of our visit to the Pukeora Trust this term.

The Vinnies are also busy making decorations for Veronicas Place, which is a house for young mothers in nearby Waipawa.
