Christmas Fayre PTA Update

St. Anne’s School Hall, brimmed with festive cheer and community spirit, as the Parent Teacher Association hosted an especially successful Christmas Fayre, on Sunday, the 10th of December. The event, which brought together dedicated parents, delighted students and enthusiastic teachers, proved to be a resounding triumph!  From beautifully decorated stalls to the cornucopia of handmade crafts and delectable edibles, each contribution added a sprinkle of Christmas magic to the merriment. Gathered families and friends, immersed themselves in a plethora of activities, including, face-painting and festive games. While René (Year 9) commented that his, “favourites were the beautifully detailed and decorated cupcakes!”, Fraser (Year 9), enthusiastically stated, “the best part of today has been seeing my baby brother’s big smile! Today was fun and exciting; it’s our first Alderney Christmas Fayre.”  Undoubtedly, as stated by Mrs Beth Chapman (Chair of the PTA), “the laughter of children, and the infectious smiles on their faces, were a testament to the joyous and inclusive environment, created by the collaborative efforts of both teachers and parents.”  Without contest, the highlight of the afternoon was the musical interlude, where Mrs Mark and Ms Smith, merged the School Choir and Sign Language Club together, to form the, ‘Sing and Sign Club’. Future euphonious collaborations are promised in the New Year! Mrs Beth Chapman shared the incredible outcomes of our 2023 Christmas Fayre: “the success of this event, with over £1,500 raised, not only signifies a joyful start to the holiday season but also highlights the strength of the St. Anne’s School Community.”

Music Services update

Two pupils have taken Trinity College of Music graded exams this term. 
Theo in Year 7 passed with merit Grade 3 on his tuba, and Jas in Year 11, passed  Grade 5 with distinction on her clarinet.  Both started playing at the beginning of Year 5 and have worked hard with commitment to achieve these excellent results. Currently there are six pupils playing in the lunchtime band known as ‘8 Bars Rest’, who gave a spirited and inspiring performance at the latest awards night before half term. Those who have not been playing as long should be joining the band around February half term. It is important to that those higher up the school should feel that they are, and should be seen to be, mentors to the less experienced players.

Year 9 D of E

Here are year 9 students wearing their new cosy Duke of Edinburgh Award hoodies which were very kindly sponsored by Tracey and Julie-Anne at the Blonde Hedgehog hotel and embroidered by the fantastic Claudia at Sew Much Fun. They are looking forward to wearing them on expedition next year. In the meantime, they are busy completing a variety of other award sections. This includes volunteering their time at Riduna Radio, helping supervise infants gymnastic club, volunteering at Youth Club, collecting useful data on fish species for Alderney Wildlife Trust, beach cleans and sour fig removal. Along with volunteering they are learning new recipes to cook, mountain biking, playing snooker and attending football training. These young people are really playing an active role in the life of their island.





AJ West visit to St Anne’s School

AJ West held workshops with Years 5 & 6 on how to be a storyteller, showing them how to create stories that capture the imagination and use the magic of words, then tell those stories with fun, confidence, and creativity. 

Secondary pupils had a workshop which went through smart plotting and engineering a twist. His workshop helped students prepare for exams by teaching them quick and simple ways to create a structure for a story and then impress examiners with a clever twist.

“I have been blown away by the creativity and capability of the students here,” said West afterwards. “They are more than just students, they are already good enough to be authors themselves and the Alderney literary scene is in good hands.”

Miss Smith said “It has been a privilege and a pleasure to have A J West visit us – what an inspiration he is.”


Infant's Artwork has been displayed in empty shops in town...

Empty premises in town have been livened up with colourful displays of artwork and drawings, created by the pupils of St Anne’s Schools, adding a sparkle and entertainment to what were previously rather sad looking empty premises.  Now walking up and down Victoria Street has turned into a pleasant talent spotting discovery tour for shoppers, residents and visitors and the displays have already created much interest and applause.

Youth Games 2023

On Saturday 20th May, for the very first time, St Anne’s School, Year 5 & 6 pupils took part in a variety of events at the Guernsey Youth Games. They absolutely loved the experience and we’re still riding high on the success of it over here in Alderney.

Under the guidance of Guernsey Sports Commission coaches and with the financial support of Alderney Sports Foundation, a strong spirit of sports participation has been awakened in many of our young people and we are confident that this is just the start of many future successful sporting endeavours for our learners here at St Anne’s.
