The Blue Star Programme teaches primary school pupils about European cultures and the EU through creative activities and projects which complement the national primary curriculum. The idea is to foster better understanding and knowledge of Europe and how it affects the lives of Irish citizens among Irish primary pupils in a curriculum friendly manner.
As part of the programme, Frances Fitzgerald MEP and Barry Andrews MEP visited the school on Garden Day with Senator Barry Ward. The flag of Europe was raised and a tree planted to mark the location. Afterwards, 5th class girls got the chance to ask questions of Frances Fitzgerald which were insightful and answered in detail by Mrs. Fitzgerald.
Everyone was delighted with the visit and were extra delighted with the presentation of the Blue Star Flag!
