St Anne’s warmly welcomes the Sporting Champions


St. Anne’s warmly welcomed their All Ireland sporting champions on June 2nd for a celebration of their All Ireland success in sport. The All Ireland winning Badminton team, the All Ireland winning Camogie team and the All Ireland winning Basketball team from 1996 were all invited back to St. Anne’s in celebration of their wonderful achievements. Much hard work by all the staff took place in organising such a successful event. The hall was transformed into a beautiful venue which hosted the event.


The school badminton team this year was very successful. Both the Girls U16 and U19 teams both won silver medals in a very tough school’s competition competing in Division 1. The girls U14 were triumphant on the day winning Gold medals for the school. This is a great achievement by all involved.

The school Junior Camogie team were also celebrated on the night for their achievement on becoming All Ireland champions earlier this year. The girls, under their coaches Ms. A. Minogue and Ms. C Moloney, trained very hard this year and their dedication to their sport really paid off. The players were presented on the night with beautiful All Ireland winning medals, a team hoodie and a picture collage to remember this very special occasion.

The third celebrated team on the night was the 1996 All Ireland Basketball Champions. 20 years ago along with Mr. Hayes and Mr. Gleeson, the girls travelled up to the National Basketball Arena in Tallaght with the dream of winning All Ireland gold for Clare. The girls who played 20 years ago were honoured for their achievement with medals and trophies. Not much has changed as we heard stories of singing on the buses and the fighting spirit of the St. Anne’s girls.

Inspirational student raising money for Cancer services


Emma Flynn 2nd Year is an inspiration to the other students for fundraising for the Mid Western Cancer centre to help support those dealing with Cancer. Here is the story behind her efforts.

Mid-Western Cancer Foundation is an organisation that raises money for the Mid-Western Cancer centre where people with cancer receive treatment and also for the Cancer Support Centre which supplies people who are suffering from cancer or people whos loved ones have cancer with support and also massages. The reason I decided to fundraise for Mid-Western Cancer Foundation was because my dad received many treatments in the cancer centre such as Chemo Therapy and Radio Therapy and I felt I owed them something for taking care of him for the past 13 years that he had cancer. I started this with my dad back in November and we planned 3 bake sales and raffle. At the first and second bakesale we raised approximately €600.  Unfortunately  he passed away on the 14th of December before we could complete the 3rd bakesale. The week after he passed away I decided to go ahead with the third bakesale and the raffle, my friends were great help to me and many people baked for it aswell. In total we raised €1025 and the school kindly donated €600 making our total amount €1625. I presented the cheque to Mid-Western Cancer Foundation on the 27th of May 2016. The money will go towards facilities in the Cancer Cente and also the Support Centre.


Well done Emma for raising money for such a worthy cause.
