Welcome to St. Anne’s Community College, Killaloe, Co. Clare
Dear School Community…. WE NEED YOU 👉🏼
We are looking to develop a and it is hoped to involve all members of our school community in the design of this emblem.
We hope that this new crest would tell the story of our school’s history, from its Mercy and VEC beginnings, to the fabulous LCETB facility that we enjoy today.
We hope that it would encompass all our school is about, the culture, the ethos, and that it would be a symbol of the values we espouse and of course our place in the wider community of our twin towns.
We would love to see as many entrants as possible in this whole school endeavour to get as many varied and artistic ideas of what the school crest would mean to everyone in our school community. This is open to our local community, past pupils, artists, primary schools etc.
For further information on how you can take part, and the criteria involved, please contact email@example.com

World Book Day – Free Books & Tokens!
World Book Day has a series of books that are completely FREE with a World Book Day Token. The tokens can also be used to get €1.50 off any full price book or audio-book. This year we have a digital book token (click here) that can be used from Thursday 18 February – Sunday 28 March 2021. In 2021 participating booksellers will honour the tokens beyond the 28 March while stocks last. Check out the full list of available books and a special Irish title here: World Book Day Ireland – World Book Day
The main aim of World Book Day is to encourage children and young people to explore the pleasure of books and reading. This may sound like a very simple idea, but unfortunately, many children do not have access to books in their homes. With this token up to 15 million children in Ireland and the UK have an opportunity to have a book of their own.
Feel free to download it and share it with your families and friends so we can all enjoy a good read (and maybe some much needed peace and quiet at home!)
World Book Day Resources
Lastly, there is an abundance of resources, videos, podcasts etc. available here: World Book Day Secondary Resources that you might like to use this week and I have attached the full Secondary Resource Pack too. (There’s also a Primary School Pack attached that has lots of content/videos/activities for younger kids that might help to entertain some smaller people at home!)
Happy World Book Day to you all!
