Recycling Week: 19th – 23rd January

T.Y. Art students organised 'Recycling Week' in school. By having this project, students developed an awareness of the importance of conserving and protecting our environment and our natural resources. 'Recycling Week' was aimed at educating students on the methods they can use to reduce waste.

Students were encouraged to collect materials needed by the T.Y. Art students for their Art project - local competition ‘Trashion Fashion’ and national competition ‘Junk Kouture’. Junk Kouture Recycled Fashion Competition 2015 in association with Repak is a national platform which gives young, expressive designers the opportunity to work with various junk materials with a view to creating a striking dress design and an impressive work of art.

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.
