When the boys saw snow out through the classroom windows this morning, there was a spontaneous outbreak of Christmas songs! From Junior Infants Class upwards, the boys just had to go out to the yard to experience the snow first hand. They went in turn and really enjoyed the experience as can be seen from the following pictures.
The entire Prep School, from Junior Infants to Sixth Class, attended a performance of the Cork Pops Orchestra today. CBC had the balcony to themselves, so even the smallest of the boys had an unobstructed view of the stage. CDs of the songs performed at the show were sent to the school a few weeks ago, so that the classes could practice them in advance. This meant full audience participation! A splendid time was had by all. After the show, the Junior and Senior Infants were collected by parents and taken home, First and Second Class boys were collected by parents and brought back to school, and the boys from Third to Sixth Class walked the half mile back to school (accompanied by their teachers, of course).
If any parents have pictures of the show, email them and they will be put up on the website.
Yesterday, Sixth Class visited UCC’s Science, Engineering and Food Science (SEFS) Department at its headquarters at the Western Gateway Building (where the old Greyhound Track used to be), where UCC has laid on an Interactive Workshop for Primary and Secondary school pupils during Science Week.
The boys were introduced to the displays by staff members Jill, Diarmuid, Alan and Paddy, and then were allowed an hour of hands-on activity. They thoroughly enjoyed their morning of Science which was great fun and very thought provoking. Sincere thanks to the very friendly staff of UCC for giving our Sixth Class boys a great experience during Science Week.
