Holi Festival

On Wednesday March 20th, we celebrated the Hindu festival of Holi. The Holi festival is also known as the Celebration of Colour and is a Hindu Festival designed to celebrate the triumph of good over evil.  The festival is celebrated across the world, and participants also throw coloured powder and water over each other to celebrate the natural colour we find in the world.
Students from year 7,8 and sixth form were invited to come to festival. We started the festival with eating Indian food which was accompanied by Ms Thesia explaining the origins of Holi to the students.  The students then went outside accompanied by Mr McCarthy, Mr Parker and Ms Hill. The pupils were given cups to fill with different coloured powders and started throwing the coloured powder at each other and the teachers. By the end everyone was covered in coloured powder. The students said they had a lot of fun.

International Women’s Day 2019

International Women’s Day 2019

International Women’s Day was on Friday 8th March, so The Bushey Academy sixth form students and staff came together to show their respect to celebrate the event. From this we have been able to engage with the #balanceforbetter campaign which is to help men and women across the world to become equal and express their individuality. As a collective we have also been able to find out why it is important to different people and what International Women’s day means to them. This campaign doesn’t finish on International Women’s day, it runs all year and continues to help a lot of people across the world. You can also visit https://www.internationalwomensday.com/ to find out more about the campaign alongside with smaller campaigns that are going on across the globe, look at important events in women’s history, watch many videos on how other people are celebrating International Women’s Day and many more!
