Welcome to the new school year 2013-2014

Welcome to everyone as we enter into another school year in St. Anne`s.

I would like to extend a particular welcome to new parents and new pupils, we look forward to working with you and your families over the coming years. 

This year will hopefully see the commencement of Phase 2 of our building plans. During this phase a two storey building will be constructed in the area of our existing sensory garden - this will ultimately become out senior school building. In the short term however all classes presently housed in the old building and prefabs will move into it. This will facilitate the demolition of all the old structures with minimum disruption to the running of the school.

On the site of the old building and pre-fabs additional classrooms  will be built as well as a library, games room, meeting rooms, offices and therapy rooms.

As the Department of Education had originally agreed on a schedule of accommodation in 2010 - we decided to look at this again with the appointment of our design team. There were several areas we felt could be improved upon so we applied for additional accommodation to meet the needs of our pupils.

The Department are currently considering this and we hope they will agree that our needs justify the excess.  

We look forward to a year of challenges, successes and growth
