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.
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.

Pancake Day celebrations in Reception Class
Christmas came early for students at St. Anne’s school who have signed up for the Duke of Edinburgh Award. They are seen here wearing their cosy new sweatshirts which were sponsored by The Blonde Hedgehog Hotel. Students following the award are busy completing their volunteering, physical and skills sections at the moment with varied activities such as football, singing, photography, playing guitar, horse riding and volunteering at KFA and youth club. Their expedition training starts in the New Year and they are sure to be grateful for their stylish new sweatshirts. Huge thanks from the students go to Tracey and Julie-Anne at the Blonde Hedgehog for kindly sponsoring the tops and Claudia at Sew Much Fun for the beautiful embroidery.
