European Movement Ireland is delighted to confirm that the Blue Star Programme will be running for its seventh year over the 2017-2018 school term and the registration process for interested primary schools across Ireland is now open!
What is Involved?
Primary schools interested in taking part in the Blue Star Programme 2017-2018 can register here now before Friday 13 October!
Participating schools will then be asked to submit a short Action Plan to the Blue Star Programme National Coordinator (which has been European Movement Ireland since 2011), outlining the goals they hope to achieve and how they plan to fulfil the Programme requirements. At the end of the year, schools are required to submit a Final Report outlining how each of the key elements were explored. Schools are also encouraged to host an event for Europe Day on 9 May such as an art exhibition, parade or food fair.
Each school’s submission is assessed by the National Coordinator. All schools that successfully complete the Blue Star Programme are awarded Certificates of Achievement signed by the Minister of State for European Affairs and the Executive Director of European Movement Ireland.
