Culture Day in the CBS


The school was delighted to take part in its first Culture Day on Friday 22nd September 2017.

Culture Day is an annual all-island public event that celebrates culture, creativity and the arts. The students of 1A created a class showcasing what they considered to be important to their understanding of Irish culture. Neville Fitzpatrick brought the class to the CBS Kitchen for the first time, where the students prepared and baked Irish Soda Bread. Mr. Galvin, as part of his English class, prepared a poem, ‘The Music of Hurling’ by George Harding, which the students acted out with great enthusiasm, showing great hurling skills throughout.

The students also wrote their own poem, called ‘the Art of Trad’, telling the story of a trip to the Fleadh, which was performed to the class. Presentations were made on topics chosen by the students; the GAA Stadiums of Ireland, Irish Music (which included a video of a song in support of Conor McGregor), Famous Irish People, the Irish Flag and Irish Food.

Culture Day ended with the class of 1A singing ‘Beidh Aonach Amárach’ accompanied by 6th Year students Tadgh Kennedy and Christopher Callinan
