Bath Tour 2019: Presentation of Tour Gear

Best of luck to the 6th Class boys who will depart for Bath on the 20th annual 6th Class Rugby Tour at the exceptionally early time of 4.30am tomorrow morning! This morning the boys received their Tour Gear, a lot of which was sponsored by various parents in the class. Thank you to the parents for their generosity. The gear was presented by Scott Buckley and Aidan Brien (a former Prep School student) from the Senior Rugby Team.

A very hearty congratulations to this year’s Tour Captain, Louis Murphy, and Vice Captain, Evan Collins who were announced today. Well done also to Matthew Daly who designed this year’s Tour Jersey. The boys will look great as they play their matches in this fantastic jersey! A big thank you to Mr. Lynch for organising another tour and to Ms. McAdoo and Mr. Enright who will accompany him to chaperone the boys over the next few days. Wishing all a happy and safe trip. We look forward to hearing all about it after the Easter Holidays!

Easter Egg Raffle

There was great excitement in the lunchroom today during the annual Easter Egg Raffle. This is always the final fundraising activity for the 6th Class Bath Rugby Tour and was followed by the Presentation of Tour Gear to the departing 6th Class Team. Well done to all the boys who won eggs today!


Trade and Bartering in 6th Class

This week 6th Class learned about barter, trade and money in History. To bring the topic to life, we created our own classroom currency, CBUX, and the boys had to trade or buy/sell a rugby team. There were some great deals done in the classroom and there are definitely some shrewd businessmen amongst this year’s 6th Class!

Transition Year Play

The students and teachers of the Prep School were very lucky to be invited to a special showing of this year’s Transition Year play, Crucified, today. Mr. Hussey and the actors showed us some of the key scenes from the play as well as sharing some “behind the scenes” secrets. It was a very enjoyable break from the classroom for the Prep School boys. Well done to all involved!
