St Joseph’s School (Rangiora)

Our team of Young Vinnie’s (Young Saint Vincent De Paul group of Year 6, 7 and 8 children) have organised and lead two initiatives in Term 2 and Term 3.

One was helping out after one of our masses to give out soup to the elderly in the Parish community. We served tea and cake as well.

The other initiative is the Christmas Hamper Appeal that they do each year with older members of the Parish. The students organised a Mufti Day on Friday 10th November, where each child had to bring a toiletry item in place of a gold coin donation. On Wednesday 13th December they will be making the Hampers and delivering them to the elderly and people less fortunate than themselves as a gift.
