Dear parents and students, 

Easter fever was about in the last few days at St Anne’s.


Junior Infants helped 6th class find the missing chickens and eggs for the the Easter Bunny. While he was very busy, the Easter Bunny did manage to ring the classes and sent a chocolate ‘thank you’ to all the children. I am sure he will visit everyone on Easter Sunday too. 

Other classes were out and about looking for eggs too!


Many classes created beautiful chocolate buns and cakes, cards and pictures to celebrate Easter.

Well done to the boys in Ms Malone’s class who created beautifully decorated Easter trees.  I will put my one on my table at home for Easter.

During the week we had a visitor, Daisy, the calf. Thanks to Farmer John for bringing Daisy and for showing the children his tractor and talking about his farm.

Baking was certainly a theme in school (and at home!) this week. Mr O Hanlon’s 6th class arranged a Cake Sale for charity (P.A.W.S and Dogs for the Disabled). They raised €1200 for the charities, an amazing achievement!. Well done to the students for their organisation of the event and all their work at home preparing. 



And thanks to all the students who came to the sale- so many families and their dogs will benefit from your generosity.


Yesterday was a great day for St Anne’s as we had a boys and a girls team competing in the Kildare Cumann na mBunscoil Athletics. Congratulations to all who competed and well done on bringing home a cup and individual medals too.  We are proud of you all!

Finally, in the midst of Easter egg hunts, we were delighted to be able to welcome Paddy Madden to St Anne’s to help us with planting some trees at the back of the school

Each class planted a tree with Paddy and we will name each one and watch them grow for years to come. 

Well done all!



May I take this opportunity to wish you all a very happy Easter and lots of good times together

I look forward to seeing everyone in Term 3 and to some exciting times ahead!


Best wishes, 

Mary Manley
