A Generous Community

Parents be proud of your children.  Two weeks ago the Mini Vinnies members supervised the St Vincent De Paul Christmas Appeal.  They went into the classrooms explaining the needs of others and asked for donations.  The children from Kinder to Yr. 6 raised $167.  A wonderful response, keeping mercy alive in our hearts.  I am constantly touched by the generosity of families in our community.  Your children learn from you and your giving to others.  I thank you.

At this Friday’s assembly, the Mini Vininies members are presenting a SPaR (stop, pray and reflect).  Their thoughts, feelings and reflections on helping others are put into this presentation of ‘HOPE’.  If you can attend, you will be delighted by their commitment to our community and the wider community.  Come and write GENEROSITY, GIVING, HELPING on a mercy heart to put on our ‘Tree of Mercy’.  I will be outside the hall to assist your from 2pm.

God bless our families, Tess Family Educator
