WELCOME PRIMARY 1
We are delighted to welcome eighteen new Primary One children to Bushvalley Primary this year. Mrs Hutchinson, Mrs Laverty and Mrs McCooke have been very busy helping the children settle into school life and we have been told that they are getting on just great!
IPADS FOR BUSHVALLEY
Mrs Irwin is delighted to inform you that we now have eight iPads up and working at Bushvalley!
Three iPads were bought through money raised by the School Council: Halloween Fun Day, Break the Rules Day and Easter Fun Day. The PTA then donated money for a further three iPads and a very generous donation allowed us to make it up to a total of eight iPads.
Thank you once again, Mrs Irwin is a very happy ICT Co-ordinator!
