Orana Mini Vinnies
A number of Orana students have pledged to make a difference in their world by forming a Mini Vinnies group based on the ideals of the St Vincent de Paul Society.
Although their hands are small, they realise together they can make positive, incremental changes to the lives of others.
This is a wonderful opportunity for our students to become more aware of social justice issues and live gospel values through their actions.
