A Vinnies Christmas at Cabra

It's beginning to look a bit like Christmas at Cabra Dominican College where Year 6 to 10 House Captains and members of the Social Justice Group gathered to decorate the Monica Farrelly Atrium in preparation for their St Vincent de Paul Christmas Appeal. The students are collecting donations of gifts and non-perishable items, which will be distributed to those in need in their local community.
