Eighty years of Bush Post Primary School

80 years of bush schoolEighty years of Bush Post Primary School is remembered in a new book which has been published to commemorate this historic anniversary. The handsome paperback book traces the history of the school from its humble beginnings over Kearney's Store in 1937 with 22 pupils and four teachers to its current status as a thriving post-primary school with 557 students and fifty staff.
This book commemorates the significant role that the school has played in the lives of so many students and tries to capture the uniqueness of this school. All current students were invited to go out into the community and talk to individual past pupils, relations, friends and neighbours recalling and recording their time in Bush so that all elements of school life and all areas of the peninsula would be represented in print. The result is a fascinating insight into life in both the school and the Cooley peninsula over the past eight decades.
From its beginning in 'an old disused corn loft, very cold and draughty and occasionally letting in the rain' to the present day state of the art school, the secret of Bush's success has always been on the attention given to students and this is what shines through the publication as past-pupils and former staff share their recollections of their days at The Bush.
The history of the country is reflected in the development of the school, as the curriculum changed to match the changing times.The Book is available for purchase throughout the peninsula or can be bought directly from the school.
