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.
Mrs. Weldon is our Blue Star coordinator. 2015 is a perfect year for us to get involved with the Blue Star Programme, as it integrates really well with our Green Flag theme of Globalisation! Classes are busy working on a number of projects that will be submitted with our action plan.
