Christian Brothers' College PPU has played an integral part in the life of the College for over seventy years. Throughout its existence, the Union has been a tower of strength to the College. Since its formation in 1931, the ethos of the Union has always been its desire to support, encourage and indeed sponsor the work and life of the College. The Union has contributed to C.B.C. in ways that could not have been imagined by its founders. It has sponsored a host of co-curricular events and activities - from debates to sports days to golf outings. At its first Annual General Meeting in 1931, the aims of the Union were "...to bring together its members, at least once a year, to renew friendships, to keep members in touch with the life and the progress of their school and undertake such activities as shall seem proper to members."

When the time came in the mid 1980s for the big challenge, namely the building of a new Secondary College and a new Preparatory School, the Union became the bedrock of the project. Suffice to say that the lion's share of the fund-raising was done by the Union. Thus, the Class of 2004 having spent their entire school years in the new College, should clearly understand and appreciate what all of us in C.B.C. owe to the P.P.U. The new College would not have been possible without the trojan work carried out by the P.P.U. members. Committee members worked selflessly at home and abroad to raise the contribution required so that the Department of Education could give the go-ahead. Past pupils contributed generously to make the new College a reality.

Furthermore, we exhort all members to consult the magnificent volume produced by the Union in 1989, entitled 'Christians: The First Hundred Years' (available in the College archives). Here you may read further on the history of the Union, the story of many illustrious past pupils of C.B.C. and the details of the work involved in planning the construction of the new schools.

CBC Prep School

  • Senior Infants have been learning about penguins this month and on Thursday they drew some beautiful penguins during Art. Their teacher, Mrs. FitzPatrick, is looking forward to hanging their work up in the classroom!
  • Fifth Class had a very busy morning last Wednesday. Sean Cotter visited the school and introduced the class to Orienteering. He covered topics such as drawing maps, reading maps, setting the map and following directions. Later the boys had a group challenge as they navigated their way around the College grounds.
  • Senior Infants have been learning about 2D shapes. Last week they tested their knowledge by going on a shape hunt around the school. They found lots of great examples of squares, rectangles, triangles and circles dotted around the building.
