OLM Shauri Moyo was unable to accommodate all the girls seeking admission there hence the need for another girls’ primary school in Eastlands area. In 1960 Sr. Eileen Byrne went as headmistress, to the newly built St. Anne’s primary school, approximately a metre away from Shauri Moyo. Sisters of Mercy remained on the staff of the school up to 1990.
Currently, St. Anne’s has a population of 1097 pupils.
The enrolment has been as follows in the past years:
2019: 1129 pupils
2017: 1020 pupils
