“Not just a school but a learning community”
“As CBS heads towards its 50th year it is time to take stock and acknowledge the vital role the school has played in the community and in the lives of its pupils.”
In November 2007 the school was proud to be the recipient of The Aishling Award for Outstanding Endeavour. It was recognition for the hard work and commitment of both staff and pupils.
Post Primary education has changed in recent years and CBS has led the way, embracing new ideas and meeting challenges head on. Education is evolving with the demise of the transfer test and CBS stands ready to meet the needs of all its pupils well into the future.
“One of our main successes over the years has been our development of a learning community, involving educators from the non teaching professions. This innovation has provided an invaluable support for our pupils and staff and has fulfilled a target of taking education beyond the classroom doors in the interests of all our community of pupils parents and staff”
Tom Armstrong, Principal.
