CBC Preparatory School is an eight classroom school with a library/computer room and lunchroom where students assemble each morning before class. At break time students play outside in our yard.
The College sports facilities (used by the Prep School on a weekly basis), on the Old Youghal Road, are a mere three minute walk from the side entrance to the College on Patrick’s Hill. Lansdowne boasts a state of the art clubhouse and dressing rooms facility, as well as two main rugby pitches (with a covered stand on the main pitch), and a further two training pitches. Floodlights allow sports training during the darker winter months, and later into the evenings. We are also very lucky to have regular access to the Astro Pitch and Sports Hall in the secondary school.
Christians boasts a state-of-the-art oratory – designed by the renowned sculptor Fergus Costello. Positioned on the first floor of the main Christians campus the oratory offers students and teachers a place of solitude and tranquility in which to pray and retreat from their busy schedules. The oratory is distinguished by features of bog oak and ornate wood carvings symbolizing Christian imagery – while the tabernacle is remarkable in artistry. Classes from the Prep School can visit the Oratory with their teachers during the school year.
The school garden, complete with a student made “Bug Hotel” has beautiful views overlooking the city. Teachers regularly take their classes to the garden where they happily hunt for bugs, plant and tend to flowers, listen to stories or sketch the views in front of them.
