Sending Love to Sr. Ethel

Light and love to Sr. Ethel and her family at this time. May she find the comfort and rest she deserves and needs with her family in Dublin. Sending her all our strength and prayers. God speed.

In our shared love and admiration for Sister Ethel and with heartfelt gratitude for all she has done for so many, it is with great sadness that we share the news that Sister Ethel was recently diagnosed with lung cancer. Not one to ever draw attention to herself, she has opted to receive palliative care near her family and as such is quietly traveling to Dublin.
It is now up to us to continue her legacy and, being the visionary she is, she has prepared us well for it. We will take our guidance from her values of gratitude, accountability, compassion and unconditional love. It is her biggest concern that the care for those who are most vulnerable will continue and we are fully committed to ensuring that Sister Ethel’s good work will continue to live on for many years to come.

New school crest for St. Anne’s Community College

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.
