A one of a kind story about a new teacher and his first job at a remote, country school. Bush School is a fascinating memoir of how a young man rose to a challenge most would shrink from today. It tells movingly of the resilience and spirit of children, the importance of learning and the transformative power of teaching. Written by Peter O'Brien.

Books Official Stockist

In 1960, newly minted teacher Peter O'Brien started work as the only teacher at a bush school in Weabonga, two days' travel by train and mail car from Armidale. Because of Weabonga's remoteness, the students were already at a disadvantage, but they were keen and receptive and had been blessed with an enthusiastic and committed teacher.

about the author:

Now in his 80s, Peter O'Brien is a former teacher and academic who was instrumental in starting up ANTaR to promote harmony between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders and non-Indigenous Australians. He set up the 'Sea of Hands' idea, which saw hundreds of thousands of white hands being planted outside Parliament House and many other locations as a form of support and fund raising. His work with ANTaR was recognised with an Order of Australia.
