Open Evening

The Open Evening scheduled for Tuesday 9 March has been cancelled.  Parents interested in sending their sons to the Preparatory School who contacted the school over the past school year, were invited to call to the school during normal school hours in order to view the school in operation during a school day.  This policy has proved to be very successful.  Parents who have not taken advantage of this arrangement so far, are invited to phone the school (021 4559209) and make an individual appointment to come during normal school hours.  The parents who called so far, many of whom brought their sons with them, were very pleased with the insight into the school which the experience gave them.  It gave them the essential information to make up their minds as to whether what the Preparatory School was offering was what they were looking for for their sons.


While they waited to compete with the team from Colaiste an Spoiraid Naomh, the CBC Secondary School Chess Team spent some time with Third Class chess players.  The younger boys picked up a lot of tips and some of the conventions of competing in formal chess competition.Bro Reynolds Mass 019Bro Reynolds Mass 015
