Sinn Féin Councillor Antóin Watters has congratulated the pupils of his former school on their Junior Certificate results.
Councillor Watters said:
“Firstly I would like to congratulate every student in Bush post Primary School who sat the Junior Certificate. I would also like to congratulate their teachers and other staff in the school. Having attended Bush I know how hard everyone works to ensure that all young people reach their full potential.”
“We are very fortunate to have such a good school in the community. It caters for all the young people in the area and provides a very broad curriculum with high standards for all whilst recognising individual interests.
“Bush has provided opportunities for thousands of young people to access careers in their chosen fields and signposted them to universities and further education colleges to study the sciences, medicine, agriculture, arts and finance, to apprenticeships, jobs in local businesses, construction and agriculture.
“It has grown in numbers every year and works very closely with its local primary schools to ease the transition to 2nd Level education.
“Students who completed the Junior Cert have now moved into their new school term and are either doing transition year, leaving certificate course or LCA. This is a very important time in their lives and I wish them all the best.”
