School Photographs  -  Monday 3rd October 2016.  All our Primary 1 pupils will have their school photograph taken on this date.  Families and any other pupils may if you so wish have their photos taken again.  Remember Primary 4’s and 7’s will have their pictures taken later in the year for 1st Communion and Confirmation.


Primary 1 Literacy  -  Meeting for parents will be held in a P1 classroom on Monday 12th September at 2.00 p.m. or Monday 19th September at 7.15 p.m.  We would encourage all parents to attend one of these as the teaching of literacy has changed considerably over the past few years.  Please let your child’s class teacher know which you will be attending if you haven’t already done so.   Looking forward to seeing you there.

We are holding a Children’s Book Fair from Monday 10th until Thursday 13th October.  The commission from sales at the fair allows us to buy books for the classrooms and library, so every book you buy helps us to get new books for the school.


Health Promotion  -  Primary 3 - Primary 7

To ensure children have a healthy break St. Anne’s subsidise milk and fruit.  As a health promoting school only water/milk or fruit may be taken at breaktime.

Free School Meals:  If your child is entitled to free school meals and you have not applied you would need to do so as the school can only issue tickets to children  on the WELB list.  If you need an application form please collect one at the school office.  Paying dinners at the canteen will cost £2.50 for pupils this year.


Asthma  -  We keep an asthma register in St. Anne’s to ensure that staff are fully aware and able to meet each child’s needs.  If your child is diagnosed during the year please inform the school.  Spare inhalers are also kept in each classroom labelled with the child’s name.  Please complete the attached form and return to your child’s class teacher as soon as possible.

Breakfast Club

Breakfast club will be available from 8.00 a.m. Primary 4 - Primary 7 children will be on the playground (if dry) / assembly hall (if wet) from 8.30 a.m.

8.00 a.m. - 8.50 a.m. each day
Everyone attending the breakfast club receives a ticket worth 25p This means that any of the 50p specials below only cost 25p Breakfast is the most important meal of the day because it is the first meal eaten after an all night fast. It provides the body with energy for the day ahead. Research shows that children who skip breakfast do not perform so well at school. Parents should encourage children to have an adequate breakfast in the morning. Suitable breakfasts are – breakfast cereals (preferably wholegrain, with no sugar added), boiled egg and toast, baked beans and toast etc. Alternatively you might like to encourage your child to come along to our Breakfast Club: This has proved to be very successful. If your child misses his/her breakfast at home send him/her to the Breakfast Club. Breakfast Club is not only for children. Everyone is Welcome!
