Bush Week Traditions
Schools have some interesting traditions.
For example, at Westminster School in the UK, a tradition known as “The Greaze” began in 1753 and is still celebrated on Shrove Tuesday each year. It involves the cook tossing a 'horsehair reinforced' pancake over a high bar, and the pupils then fight over the pancake for one minute.
At Woodleigh, in Bush Week, we plant trees.
Every year, the Bush Week Homestead Session sees Year 7 and Year 12 students band together to give hundreds of new plants a new home, and this year was no different.
950 plants were added to Woodleigh's green mass, and here is the proof!
