Blue Star Programme
To foster better understanding and knowledge of the European Union
The school achieved Blue Star status in 2013. Blue Star Programme is an education initiative for primary school students across Ireland. The idea of the Programme is simple: 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.
The school carried out projects and tasks that included information about:
- the foundation and development of the European Union;
- the cultural and linguistic diversity of Europe;
- the role of the EU: what it does and how its work affects the lives of European citizens;
- a Europe Day event where the school community showcased and celebrated its achievements throughout the year.
