athletes and teachers
Each year athletes from St. Anne's School attend Munster Special Olympics competitions in Cork. Competitors take part in events such as 100 and 400 meter running and walking races, shot putt, wheelchair races and other track and field events. The games have an atmosphere of anticipation, enthusiasm, cheerfulness and joy with all athletes eagerly anticipating their events.

In 2009 St. Anne's athletes returned home with an impressive collection of 6 gold medals, 4 silver medals and 5 bronze medals. The Board of Management extended heartiest congratulations to all athletes, coaches and families!
