The Gaisce award is challenge set to all young people under the age of 21 by the President of Ireland.
To achieve this award students must undertake 13 weeks developing a personal skill, 13 weeks volunteering in the local community, 13 weeks doing Physical Recreation.
Students then select one of those categories to complete for 26 weeks.

After all of this is complete, students must undertake a 30km hike.

These students will receive their certificates and medals at our school awards ceremony in September.
Well done to all involved.

    On Wednesday 16th May, there was 2 cookery demonstrations. 

    The first demonstration was for all our 1st year Home Ec Students. Yvonne McElroy of The Pantry Cookery School made a range of dishes, focusing on healthy, easy to prepare meals that our students could make themselves.

    The second demonstration was with local chef Paul White. Paul is a past pupil of Bush Post Primary and has worked in kitchens all over the world. Paul used local ingredients supplied by Morgan Fresh Fish in Omeath.
