Great work from our Senior Cup Team yesterday. They were out cleaning up Monsktown Village, They cleared nearly 100 bags of leaves and rubbish from the streets, making Monkstown a much nicer place for all residents and visitors over Christmas. Well done lads.
On Wednesday December 19th, a number of CBC Present / Past Pupils and Staff took part in an Indoor Rowing Marathon in the Dundrum Town Centre. In total the participants rowed over 360km in the 9 hours on 4 rowing machines.
It was great to see pupils, past and present and teachers including Mr. Corcoran, Mr. Ferguson, Mr. Brennan and our Principal Mr. Duffy working hard for this great cause.
Thank you to all those who supported and helped raise over €7,500 for the CMRF Crumlin.

As our Transition Year pupils embark on work experience after Christmas, most work places will require a letter from our insurance company.
We are waiting on an updated later showing cover for next year, but the letter for 2018 is available here.
Thanks to all the participants and visitors at the Advent Service last night in the hall. A great evening of celebration and carol singing in the lead up to the birth of Jesus on Christmas Day.
Special thanks to Mr. Rooney and Mr. Ó'hAnnagáin for the fabulous music, singers and choir preparation. Thanks also to Ms. O'Toole and her pupils for the great Christmas fair which was a huge success.
