Blue Star Programme

March 20th, 2012
The Blue Star Programme is a Pilot Programme for primary schools across Ireland.   The Programme is a venture of the Communicating Europe Initiative, supported by the Office of the Minister of State for European Affairs in the Department of the Taoiseach and the European Commission Representation in Ireland.
The idea of the Programme is simple: we want to foster better understanding and knowledge of the European Union and how it affects our lives amongst Irish primary pupils through classroom projects and activities.  This will be done by examining four key areas relating to the EU – historical, geographical, cultural and creative and institutional.
