Her classmates wrote the following poem to honour her achievement.

Student of the Year

by Maeve Healion and Keira Patterson

She’s the Student of the Year

and she has no fear

of being a friend to everyone, everyone.

She gets the tasks done

quicker than anyone

and she always does her best.

If she has something to do, 

she won’t take a rest

until its finished and done properly.

She’s fair to all

even when we’re playing ball

and she’ll always help you out.

She’ll never ever shout.

If your hurt and on the mend,

she will be a great friend.

She is always there for you,

she’s our best friend ever too.

We are so proud to know her – 

Our friend April.
