Hello, hello, and welcome back to St. Anne’s news!
Today, I will be informing you of the latest exciting event here in St. Anne’s…….The Talent Show! It was organised and run by the Student Council. It was a fundraiser for the student council who are interested in buying new yard equipment.
Everyone with a special talent was able to present it to the whole school. Many amazing performers took part and hearty congratulations to everyone who did. I was lucky enough to get an exclusive interview from one of the performers Ima Nwozu and one of the many organisers of our Talent Show Hannelie Foley from the Student Council!
Ima says her favourite thing about doing the talent show was the practices and seeing all of the amazing talent from all the participants. She sang “Way too good at goodbyes” while her partner Jennifer O’Dwyer amazingly danced ballet to perfection, to the melodious voice of Ima. She said that she would definitely take part again. She has benefited from the talent show because she is more confident now and in one word she described the experience as ‘amazing’!
Hannelie has enjoyed preparing for the Talent show, as she found it fun. Her favourite part was watching everybody perform. She hopes there will be another Talent Show next year, and in one word she describes it as ‘productive’. Thanks for Reading folks! 😊

On Friday the 27th April 2018, Mr Allen’s, Ms Kelly’s, and Ms Travers’ fourth classes went on an educational visit to Dublin zoo. They were transported there by bus and when they got there they were split into two groups.
They saw a lot of animals such as different types of monkeys and big cats like tigers and lions. They also saw lemurs, a real panda, orangutans, sea lions and penguins.
After that they went to the African plains and met a tour guide who brought them around and showed them lots more animals and told them lots of interesting facts. She showed them gorillas, chimpanzees, rhinos, giraffes, zebras, ostriches, water hogs and some other species. Then they had lunch and after lunch it was time to head back to the bus. They had a great time and learned lots. Big thanks to all the staff involved.

In school, we did a balloon rocket experiment. It was great fun. We watched a video of it on the Whiteboard and then we got started. If you ever want to try this at home, here is what you will need:
- a balloon
- something to hold it up with (we used a chair and a door handle.)
What to do:
- Thread the string through the straw;
- Blow up a balloon but don’t tie it;
- Tape the straw (with string running through it) to the balloon;
- Let the balloon go and it will shoot down the string.
- Then, watch the magic!
I would definitely recommend this as I had a lot of fun and so did my class.

Hello! My name is Pranav and I write for the St. Anne’s Media Team.
My story is about Alison’s Shop. Alison’s shop was a place where you could get stationary. You could get cool pencils, rulers and much more. The shop started in Ms. Travers’ class and in two weeks everyone knew about it. Without Noreen, Alison and Ms Travers the shop wouldn’t have existed.
In a month it became a trend. All the money went to Trócaire and again it was thanks to Noreen, Alison and Ms. Travers. We raised €420. Fifth class also raised money for Trócaire. As a result, we were able to give Trócaire a large cheque that will support people to live with dignity and independence in some of the world’s poorest countries.
