Blue Star Programme

Blue Star Programme Logo

The aim of the Blue Star programme is to foster better understanding and knowledge of the European Union and how it affects our lives among primary school children, through a programme of tasks and projects on topics broadly related to the European Union.

Under the current programme, which has been in operation since 2011, completion has been recognised by the award of a Blue Star award certificate and the presentation of an EU flag to each successful school. Over 500 primary schools have participated in the programme since 2011.
