The boys in Senior Infants celebrated World Water Day on Thursday 22nd March. They explored capacity in Maths. They also tested items to see if they were waterproof and explored whether items float or sink in Science. It was a wet day in the classroom but lots of fun was had!
Ar son Seachtain na Gaeilge, rinne Rang a Cúig píosa drámaíochta leis an teideal ‘Na Cairde Bia’. Thaitin an píosa go mór le gach pháiste agus bhain na buachaillí an taitneamh as an bpíosa a chuir ar siúl.
Maith sibh a bhuachaillí!!
Our First Class boys enjoyed taking part in the Puc Fada competition as part of the school’s Seachtain na Gaeilge activities.
Third class engaged in learning their spellings in a fun and active way during Active School Week. They all did very well.

Best of luck to the team from all in the Prep School!
Well done to Luke from 5th Class who competed in the Eason’s Spelling Bee last week – a fantastic experience!
Our students responded really well to the first phase of the Food Dudes programme. All boys in the Prep School have now received their Food Dudes lunchbox and are encouraged to continue to eat healthily by bringing fruit and veg into school each day.
Great fun was had last week in 5th and 6th classes for our Eason’s Spelling Bee Qualifier.
Well done to all boys who took part. Best of luck to Luke Philpott in 5th class who will represent CBC Preparatory School in the Cork County Final on Wednesday.
3rd Class are enjoying learning about electricity this month . They spent time this week investigating and experimenting to make their own electric circuits .

The Preparatory School boys have been participating in the Food Dudes programme this month. This programme encourages children to eat more fruit and vegetables both in school and at home. It is based on positive role models (the Food Dudes characters), repeated tasting and rewards. The boys have really been enjoying the daily videos and letters from the Food Dudes and have been excellent at tasting the fruit and vegetables on offer.
Ken from Brook Food Services visited the school in February to give a Cooking Demonstration to 5th & 6th Classes. The boys were enthralled on how easy it was to make some simple & healthy dishes and were delighted to taste all on offer. Ken showed the classes how to make Energy Balls, Granola, Chicken Wraps & Chicken Noodles. The aroma in our lunchroom was very tempting! Many thanks to Brook Food Services & to Ken for facilitating today’s demonstration. It all tied in nicely with our Food Dudes activities this week.
