TY Gaisce Award

During the last week of the school term our Transition Year students completed their Gaisce award. To achieve such an award these students had to complete 13 weeks volunteering in the community, 13 weeks developing a personal skill and 13 weeks doing physical exercise. On top of that, they complete a 25km hike over the Wicklow mountains. All students received a certificate from the President of Ireland, a medal and a pin for their school jumper.

Lourdes Trip

In May 2019 a number of Senior 1 , T.Y. and a second year student took part in the  Armagh Diocesan Pilgrimage to Lourdes. This year there were  10 students from Bush School who attended the pilgrimage to help those that are less able and in need of care.

The students of Bush  helped  to push wheelchairs for assisted pilgrims and built a positive rapport with all pilgrims.  They also helped with the liturgies and other practical matters of the pilgrimage programme such as: event planning, carrying banners and equipment.  

The students fundraised the money for their trip  themselves by holding cake sales and having an Easter egg hunt.

Everyone involved found it to be a very worthwhile experience.
