St. Patrick's NS are delighted to announce that we were awarded the European flag as a result of participating in The Blue Star Programme. The Blue Star Programme is an education initiative for primary school pupils across Ireland. The idea of the Programme is 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. The children participated in a number of activities including; History and Geography research projects and PowerPoint presentations, quizzes, a European food fair and art activities. Well done to all of the children involved.
