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.
