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! 😊

Well what a busy month it has been in Senior Infants! From nativity plays to Aistear, Wildlife Warrior Workshops to Christmas sing-a-longs, December has been a cracker of a month!!
For much of November, Senior Infants had been practising for their production of ‘What a Star!’ and boy did they shine! On the 7th December 2017 all the Mums and Dads, Grannys and Grandads, brothers and sisters came to see our star-filled nativity show and everyone was very impressed. The children put on a fantastic performance!
In between practising for our play we made sun catcher nativity scenes, Christmas elves, Christmas tree decorations, penguin pictures and Christmas cards.
We had so much fun during Aistear this month, as our theme was Christmas all our stations were linked. We were busy elves in Santa’s Workshop designing, making and wrapping toys whilst the postmen and women delivered children’s letters to Santa; we baked chocolate chip cookies for Santa Claus and we made lovely Christmas cards.
We’ve had some special visitors in Senior Infants this month, Jingles – our Elf on the shelf (who we managed to catch on camera!! The footage can be seen on our Twitter page @MsOlsonsClass) and two lovely hedgehogs from Hedgehog Rescue Dublin. We learned a lot about hedgehogs and hibernation during our Wildlife Warrior Workshop. It was lots of fun!
To send us on our merry way, we finished off the term with a lovely sing-a-long, singing carols such as Jingle Bells, Away in a Manger, Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer and Santa Claus is Coming to Town! That’s it from Senior Infants, Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!
Mr Dunne’s class have learned a song called “Somewhere Only We know” by Keane and played it at assembly. There is also a video on Facebook of them singing it which got the most likes of the year for the school. Every week the class watches RTE News2Day and answers the questions of the week. The class then sends in their answers. Mia Byrne and Ella were featured on the show. For art this Halloween the class did Halloween Silhouettes.
