Leaving Certificate Computer Science

LCCS

Bush Post Primary School has been selected as one of the 40 pilot schools in Ireland to roll out Phase 1 of the new Computer Science Leaving Certificate subject. Students will begin studying their new subject in September and will complete 70% of the subject through the June examination, which will be completed online. The remaining 30% of marks will be available for a practical project which will be undertaken over a six-week period in schools and submitted online. This is fantastic news for Bush Post Primary School and further expands its extensive range of senior cycle subjects.

The subject will focus on how computer programming and computational thinking can be applied to the solution of problems, and how computing technology impacts the world.

Students taking the subject will learn:

  • Computational thinking
  • How to analyse problems in computational terms
  • Programming languages and how to read, write, test and modify computer programs
  • Creative design
  • Design computation artefacts such as web pages, digital animations, simulations, games, apps and robotic systems
  • The ethical, historical, environmental and technological aspects of Computer Science

Wellbeing Week 2018

MarcMulligan

Wellbeing Week is running from 26th of February to the 2nd of March and a wide variety of positive and enriching activities have been organised by the Mental Health Team. This year we have invited Marc Mulligan, motivational speaker and author, to address our students.

Marc has used his very difficult life experiences to challenge himself and get outside his comfort zone. His message of facing one’s fears is an important life skill for young people to learn, teaching resilience and building self-esteem and confidence.

The presentation will be given to TY, 5th year and LCA5 students. The positive message he has to give would benefit by being reinforced at home. To that end, parents are invited to attend a talk given by Marc in the school on Wednesday 28th of February at 7pm.

Trashion Fashion Success

A massive congratulations to the TY Art students who put on an amazing performance on Tuesday night in the Carrickdale where they showcased their spectacular Trashion Fashion costumes. An extra special well done to the team 'Glam Glad', who made a warrior costume from recycled shampoo bottles. The winning team consists of  Jake McLaughlin, who also modeled the costume, and teammates Ysobel Kelly and Kirsten Murray who helped with the design, construction and performance.

The Art Department and the TY students would also like to take this opportunity to thank the Louth Tidy Towns volunteers who make this wonderful event possible.
