Welcome from our Principal

Bush Post Primary is a co-educational multi-denominational school delivering educational excellence to the community of Cooley. Our school is committed to a high quality education and our mission statement is based on the needs of our students in our care and the surrounding community.

We are located in the heart of the beautiful Cooley Peninsula and pride ourselves in providing a broad curriculum, encompassing formal academic programmes, personal development programmes and a wide range of extracurricular activities.

We are very fortunate to have a truly dedicated teaching staff who work tirelessly to provide excellence in the education of our students and as a learning community, our students continue to enjoy tremendous successes, not only academically, but in areas such as art, debating, sport, community involvement, and science. Our school facilities are the envy of many with our specialist learning rooms, our gymnasium and our fantastic running track.

Our aim is to create a stimulating learning environment where pupils can develop their full potential and learn to value and respect themselves and others. 

Kevin Joyce
Principal
