The Prep School students gathered in the yard to show their support for the Senior Rugby team in the upcoming Munster Schools Senior Cup Final against Glenstal Abbey in Irish Independent Park on Sunday.
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 .
Well done rang a trí.
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.
All of the Prep School teachers and Mr. McCarthy came to school on Saturday to complete first aid training with Cuisle First Aid. Thanks to their trainer, Pat Lowry, all staff members are now cerified as Community Cardiac First Reponders. Here are some of the teachers practicing their skills during the course:
As our Junior and Senior Infant boys were making their way to P.E. on Wednesday, they were very excited to hear the sound of drums and chants ringing through the secondary school. The school cheerleaders were ready bright and early to drum up support for the Junior and Senior Cup rugby teams and were happy to teach some of the CBC chants to our youngest students.
Our school newspaper club, CBC Times, started in October 2017. Students from 3rd to 6th class worked together with Mrs. FitzPatrick to research, write and photograph articles, interviews and reviews and they produced an excellent newspaper. Take a look at our first issue below. Well done to all involved.
CBC Times Issue 1-1vd30c1
Our first class students are very hard workers. Their teacher, Mrs. Scannell, snapped these photos as the boys were working diligently at their desks recently.
Students at the Prep School enjoyed the lead up to Christmas with plenty of activities taking place to mark the festive season.
Our Junior and Senior Infant students performed some Christmas Carols on the balcony of AIB on the South Mall, accompanied by the school choir. The staff and customers of the bank enjoyed the performance greatly, as did many of the Prep School parents who popped in to lend their support to the boys.
Our Senior Infant students were very lucky to have their application for a Classroom Elf on the Shelf accepted. A special package for Mrs. FitzPatrick’s class arrived by express delivery from the North Pole (it was still cold when it was dropped into our classroom!). Tommy the Elf got up to all sorts of shenanigans during the few weeks before Christmas which the students recorded in their Elf Adventures Log Book.
Our students in 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th Class enjoyed a fantastic afternoon ice skating at Cork on Ice and had fun showing off their moves on the ice.
Students and teachers were hard at work over the last few months preparing submissions for the We Are Writers project, arranged by Mr. Lynch. The finished product is a wonderful book of stories and poems written by the students of CBC Prep School, from Junior Infants to 6th Class. The books have been selling like hotcakes – they will make for great reading over the Christmas holidays! Well done to all the boys for their wonderful pieces and a big thank you to Mr. Lynch for putting it all together.
