Registration for Blue Star Primary School programme is now open for the 2017/18 term!

The Blue Star Programme is an educational initiative for primary school pupils 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 primary pupils through classroom projects and activities.

Pupils of all ages, from primary schools all over Ireland, are challenged to get creative and think about Europe by carrying out projects in relation to four key elements: the history, geography, culture and creativity, and Institutions of the EU.

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 is also encouraged to get involved and contribute to the Programme.

One of the advantages of this Programme is its flexibility. You, the teacher, can decide whether your entire school completes the Programme or whether you just want individual classes to participate. For more information on the programme, contact the Dublin office on bluestar@europeanmovement.ie.
