Charitable Activities

"The hallmarks of an Edmund Rice school are care,especially for those who are vulnerable or disadvantaged in any way, and action for social and ecological justice."


"The Edmund Rice School fosters in its members the sense of care, compassion and community that characterised Jesus' life."


CBC has a very active Charitable Activities committee consisting of pupils and teachers. The committee meets regularly to organise and co-ordinate events, decide priorities and respond to the many requests for support that the college receives.

2015/16 saw contributions made to Marymount Hospice, Simon Community, St. Vincent De Paul, Jack & Jill Foundation, Cork Down Syndrome, Shine Ireland, Hope Foundation, Live Life Foundation, Edith Wilkins Foundation, Cork Association of Autism and the Guide Dog Association.



James Coleman and Mrs. Healy make a presentation, on behalf of the Charitable Activities, to Rebecca Lombard who will be travelling to Kolkata with the Hope Foundation.

Zambia 2017 Immersion Project Team 2017 unveiled.



Congratulations and thanks to teachers - Mr. Simon Kelliher, Mr. Keith Moynihan, Mr. Edmund Hussey and Mr. Alan Hickey and to students - Shane McCarthy, Conall O'Deasmhunaigh, Peter McDonald, Mark Moriarty, Jamie McMahon, Rory O'Donovan, David Dorgan and Gary Houston - on a very successful trip to Zambia during June 2007. From all parents, students and teachers in C.B.C.


This was the third phase of the C.B.C. Zambia Immersion Project which involved teachers and students from C.B.C. spending time in Zambia working on projects with the Christian Brothers. The College and the Brothers in Zambia remain grateful to all in C.B.C. and in the wider Cork community for the much needed funds which are made available through the many fund-raising endeavours of students and their parents. These funds are used to support and develop projects on the ground in Zambia run by the Christian Brothers.
