Principal’s letter of Welcome to the CBC Website
Welcome to Christian Brothers’ College Monkstown website. Christian Brothers’ College Monkstown is a member of the Edmund Rice Schools Trust, which is a trust set up by the congregation of the Christian Brothers.
We in the school are guided by the ERST Charter, which bestows on us the responsibility of the spiritual, academic, intellectual, cultural and physical needs of our students. CBC has a proud history. CBC is a vibrant school, which continually seeks to achieve high standards in all that it does. Striving for academic excellence, along with a varied extra curricular programme, allows the students to express themselves both academically and individually. Every student within CBC is encouraged to pursue excellence in the classroom. Our teaching staff in CBC strives for excellence in their own professionalism within and outside the classroom. We have excellent inter-staff relationships and the sense of community among staff with students is evident throughout the college. We strive to be a happy school in which all students learn in a positive environment and where learning is valued.
From our website you will see that there are many aspects to life in CBC. I would hope that you take the time to view the pages to get a sense of the wonderful college that we have. Included also, is the major development of our new school building which should be completed in December 2013, with both state of the art classrooms and I.T facilities within the school. Our next phase of the development is a new sports hall, which is to be undertaken in due course.
Wishing you pleasant reading.
Dr. Gerard Berry
