The staff and pupils are delighted to announce that we are participating in the Blue Star Programme.

The aim of the programme is to foster better understanding and knowledge of the European Union and how it affects the lives of Irish citizens among Irish primary pupils through classroom projects and activities. It introduces us to the EU; what it means and how it works.

The goal of the Programme is to foster a strong sense of citizenship and leadership among participants that goes far beyond the school walls and into the wider community.

Pupils from 3rd to 6th class and their teachers will conduct projects in the following areas:

  • Historical
  • Geographical
  • Cultural
  • Institutional

Everybody is very excited about taking part in the programme and learning more about our EU neighbours and the importance of being a member of the EU.  We are hopeful that we will be awarded ‘Blue Star’ status and an EU flag in recognition of our hard work by the Summer time.
