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.

  • What a great team! On Monday last, the boys of 3rd Class participated in a football blitz in The Tank fields. Joined with 1st and 2nd Class, the boys displayed excellent sportsmanship and skills. It was a great day, enjoyed by all. Even the sun made an appearance for the entire event. Well done Rang […]
