Drama Club

This week in Ms Murphy’s Drama club, the boys made their own puppets to put on a show in the puppet theatre. The imagination and creativity from the boys was very impressive and a lot of fun was had throughout.

Harry Potter Club Sorting Hats

Today was the first day of Harry Potter Club so naturally the boys took part in Sorting Hat activities! We answered some questions to see which house we all belonged to – lots of Gryffindors here at CBC!- and then did a lovely Sorting Hat drawing activity.

4th Class

4th Class were up and moving during their lessons this week, taking to the lunchroom on Tuesday with Ms. O’ Donovan for Maths and again on Thursday with Mrs. FitzPatrick for Gaeilge. They worked in small groups on various activities to help consolidate the learning in these core subjects.

School Mass September 2022

This morning our school mass was celebrated in the lunchroom, marking the first time the whole school has gathered together for mass since before the beginning of the pandemic. It was a joyful occasion and a wonderful way to mark a return to normality after the past years of disruption to regular school life.

Back to School 2022

The corridors of the Prep School were buzzing this morning with the arrival of students and staff back to school after the summer break. Old friends and new chatted excitedly with a highlight of the day being our first morning assembly for prayers in the lunchroom since pre-COVID times!

The morning was spent organising school books and getting to know new teachers with lots of fun and games. Pictured below are our 4th Class boys with their teacher, Mrs. Caroline FitzPatrick, who staged a “snowstorm” in the yard as part of their ice breaking activities.


New Principal Appointed to the Preparatory School

Ms. Sharon McAdoo has been announced as the new Principal of the Preparatory School. Ms. McAdoo has been a key member of the Prep School staff for the past 13 years, holding the post of Deputy Principal for the past 4 years. She will commence her new role in August 2022, following the retirement of Dr. Larry Jordan. We wish both Ms. McAdoo and Dr. Jordan our best for the future.

Summer Camp June 2022
