The long goodbye...

We'll see everyone again on September 2nd. 
Best of luck to our 6th class pupils who have left. 
We wish you all the best in secondary school.

On Thursday 27th, the whole school community celebrated the contribution of a total  of over 70 years of dedicated service to the school by Mr Gerry Ryan (Principal) and Mrs Patricia Finn (Vice-Principal). They are wished a peaceful and happy retirement by all pupils and members of staff.

Best wishes are extended to Ms Sheila Brophy and Ms Margaret Hayes who will take over the respective leadership roles from the 2nd September. Ms Brophy's appointment is historic in that she is the first female principal of the CBS and she is wished every success in her new role.

Green Flag III celebrations

On Friday last, we celebrated the achievement of our third Green Flag. All of the boys wore blue for the occasion and a large crowd of parents turned out to witness the event. With representatives of North Tipperary County Council and An Taisce present, our soon-to-retire principal and vice-principal, Mr Gerry Ryan and Mrs Patricia Finn respectively, raised the flag to great fanfare. Afterwards we were treated to the performance of the winning CBX-Factor entry, by both 2nd classes.

Green Flag III & CBX-Factor!!

We are very pleased to announce on that on the 27th of May, William Duffy, Adam Hogan, Miss McGrath and Mrs McCabe travelled to Kilkenny to receive our 3rd Green Flag at a prestigious Awards Ceremony.
The Flag is currently on display in our Greenschools Room, but we can’t wait to see it hanging proudly alongside our other two flags.
We will be hosting our Flag Raising Ceremony on 14th June.
All students be invited to wear blue on the day to represent Water. During the morning, each class will be  invited to take part in our own CBX-Factor competition in the GP Room.
