When the children start their journey at Blessed Dominic they are allocated to one of these four houses.
St James, St Bernadette, St Margaret Clitherow and St Anthony.
We know that the children take great pride in being a member of their house.
House stars are awarded to children who have demonstrated positive learning behaviours and followed the gospel values through their words and actions. At our achievement assemblies the house with the most stars for the week are presented with our special ‘Respect’ trophy. This is celebrated weekly in our newsletter.
Our Mini Vinnies continue to flourish in the school and meet regularly to further develop the positive impact that they have made on the Catholic life of the school.
The Society of St Vincent de Paul has been engaging with young people and education for many years, which can be highlighted through the development of the ‘Mini Vinnie’ programme. Mini Vinnies are seen as having, “the potential to significantly contribute to the future of our Society.” This aim also fits in perfectly with the key principles of Catholic Social Teaching which we are teaching at St. Paul’s.
