Over the course of 3 weeks in September the new Year 8 cohort ventured on their residential trips to Ganaway. Often the highlight of the school year for Year 8 boys the Ganaway experience challenged the boys through a number of adventurous activities such as caving and a high ropes course.
On Friday 29 September, the spotlight was on academic excellence,
as we welcomed more than 50 alumni back to School for an Oxbridge celebration dinner. During the evening, donor Andrew Seth (RBAI 1946-55) joined Colin Gowdy, Chairman of the Board of Governors, and the Principal to officially unveil our newly recreated Oxbridge Honours Boards, recognising more than 300 alumni who have matriculated to either university since 1900.
On September 8th 2017 some of RBAI’s Senior Prefects journeyed to the inaugural All-Ireland Senior Prefect Leadership Conference at St Columba’s College, Dublin.
Our Head of School, Ben Connolly, along with his two deputies, Aneurin Duffin-Murray and Matthew Shane share their insights of a unique event.
At the end of term in June 45 boys from Year 11 & 12 and 6 staff departed from Dublin for New Zealand
on a three-week rugby tour. The tour coincided with the final week of the Lions tour and meant that NZ was in a bit of a rugby frenzy at the time. We were transported around NZ by Kyle and his bus from Kiwi Experience which gave us plenty of opportunity to take in the fabulous scenery.
