Our 6th Class boys had their Graduation Ceremony on Wednesday 29th May on what is always a very special occasion for the students, their families and the staff of the Prep School. The ceremony opened with mass, celebrated by Fr. Tom, and was followed by a performance by the 6th class boys. The boys were then presented with certificates by Dr. Larry Jordan with ceremony ending with the highlight of every year, a slideshow of pictures of their time at CBC. Wishing all the boys the very best as they continue on to the secondary school.
The graduating students from this year’s 6th Year cohort who began their CBC journey 14 years ago in Mrs. Lowry’s Junior Infant classroom called in to reminisce over their time in CBC and chat to the present Junior Infant Class. This is a yearly tradition in the Prep School and it’s always wonderful to see the boys and wish them luck as they leave Sidney Hill for new pastures.
In what has become something of a tradition for the students and staff at CBC Preparatory School, the final Friday training session of the school year at Lansdowne culminated in a visit from an ice-cream van. The dull weather didn’t quell the enthusiasm for the cold treats and all of the boys lined up eagerly for their ice cream! Thanks to Mr. Lynch and our 4th Year coaches for another great year of rugby at Lansdowne.
The incoming Junior Infants visited the Prep School this month to meet their teacher Mrs. Lowry and see the classroom where they will begin their journey at CBC. The Open Morning was a great opportunity for the boys to get to know each other whilst enjoying some fun activities that Mrs. Lowry had prepared for them. It was also an opportunity for the parents to meet one another as they enjoyed refreshments in the lunchroom with our Principal, Dr. Larry Jordan. We look forward to welcoming the boys back again in September!
Following a very successful year of Science lessons with Mr. O’ Connell in the secondary school, the boys from 5th and 6th Class presented their Science Projects at the first ever CBC Prep Science Fair. The boys worked very hard putting the projects together and the rest of the school really enjoyed visiting the stands to see all of the projects. Well done to all for their hard work.
