Visit from St Vincent de Paul

At assembly we had a very special visit from Paul and Margaret, both of whom work for the St Vincent de Paul Society or Vinnies as they are popularly known. They came to talk to us about the children whose education we sponsored, when we raised money on St Patrick's Day. For this they gave us a certificate and some feedback about their work. We felt happy because we were able to make the lives of other kids much better. 

Altogether we sponsored nine students BUT the seniors also had a positive education project and we had to do an action to help the others and Gemma raised money for St Vinnies. In total Gemma, Tessa and Jamie raised $66.75, to give to St Vinnies. If we raised $70 we could sponsor a child to go to school so Tessa, Jamie and Gemma are giving money for a young person to go to school.
