Team Hope Shoe Box Appeal

In keeping with the theme of giving and sharing, a class of 2nd year religion students decided that they would like to bring a little love and joy to other children around the world this Christmas by partaking in the Team Hope Shoe Box Appeal. The students of Bush wrapped and packed their shoe boxes with stationery, toys, clothes, hygienic products and lovely treats. The students also included personalised letters from Ireland with a special Christmas message and a wish. Well done to all the students who took the time and used their own pocket money to give to others this Christmas.

    On the 20th October 2016, the 2nd year Home Economics students visited The Knitting and Stitching Show which was on in the RDS. As part of their coursework they are required to complete a sewing project so the aim of the day was for the students to get inspiration, look at the different materials and maybe pick up some materials while they were there.

    Transition Year Art Gallery Trip

    On Monday,10th October 2016, Transition Years went on a trip to the Highlane Gallery, Laurence St, Drogheda, Co.Louth, where they viewed the following two exhibitions:

     

    Some thing as a line: Taking its starting point from the small painting Miniature of the Artist's Hand by William Mulready in the Drogheda Municipal Art Collection,Some thing as a line is a group exhibition that looks at the spatial and temporal properties of line.

    The show considers the ability of line to move from a representational mark to an autonomous entity in space and time. Each of the ten invited artists use line in a variety of forms, across a range of media,where line is used to engage with a sense of materials, of space and of time.Works in this exhibition show line being thought of and used in various ways including: as sculptural objects, as paintings of linear sculptures, as video work using line to measure landscapes, as mapping, as visualised data, and using line to trace and record real objects.
