On the 9th of February, the Vinnie’s members set up a stall at recess to sell around 300 pancakes for Shrove Tuesday. We sold out all our pancakes, and then proceeded to sell the leftover ice cream, which also sold out.
Following that, after taking pre orders for Valentine's roses, on Thursday the 11th of February members of the Vinnie’s group prepared the Valentine’s roses for delivery the next day. Assisted by Year 12 students Grace Boniba and Abigail Aguilar, we managed to prepare around 300 roses, which we then arranged by Learning Group. The group worked well together and we finished ahead of schedule. The roses were delivered the following morning.
It was an overall great experience and will be one of the many memories that will be experienced by us, the Junior Vinnie’s Group. Over $1000 was raised for the St Vincent de Paul Society. Thank you everyone who contributed and bought pancakes or a rose!
