The College Library is an impressive Multimedia Learning Resource Centre. The College also boasts a 25m heated indoor swimming pool, which is used as part of the Health and Physical Education program; for swimming training, as well as being utilised outside of school hours by an independent swim school for members of the local community. The Gym and Fitness area is also accessed by students and is available outside of school hours for use by members of the public.

Other facilities include our Drama Theatre which is used for smaller productions, while major music and drama productions are be held in the Logue Hall. The beautifully restored Edmund Rice Chapel is used on a regular basis for classroom Masses and for quiet reflection by both staff and students. Our Student Services area provides a warm, comfortable place for students and parents to meet with our pastoral care staff. The Careers Room may be accessed by students during class time, recess, lunch and after school when the Careers Counsellor is in attendance. Our Careers Counsellor is able to assist students to research career opportunities and tertiary courses.

The College Board is currently undertaking work on a College Facilities Master Plan which involves considerable modernisation of the existing site and the addition of facilities to further enhance the learning experiences of all students.  The Board has engaged the services of SJB Architects to collaborativley work with all members of the CBC community in the development of the plan.  Consultations have already taken place with the College Leadership Team and Staff, the Parent's and Friend's Association and some students. As a result of these discussions modifications are being made to the plan and a second wider range of consultations will then take place, including with the broader parent and student body. If all goes well it is intended that Stage 1 of the Master Plan will be implemented in 2012.
