What is the Blue Star Programme?


The 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 Blue Star Programme aims to introduce participants (pupils, teachers, parents and the wider community) to the EU; what it means and how it works. The Programme also aims to foster a strong sense of awareness of the EU among its participants that reaches far beyond the school walls and out into the wider community.
The Blue Star Programme has creativity at its core and its structure and project work encourage teachers and pupils from all corners of Ireland to 'think outside the box'. The wider school community are also encouraged to get involved and contribute to the Programme.


Congrtatulation to all our pupils for their hard work, for which the school has been awarded the Blue Flag. We had some wonderful project work and a European day where everyone staff and parents alike, learned something new from the children's presentations.
