Primary school pupils around the country are being challenged to get creative in how they learn and think about Europe through the Blue Star Programme!

The Blue Star Programme teaches primary school pupils about European cultures and the EU through creative activities and projects which complement the national primary curriculum.

The idea is simple: to foster better understanding and knowledge of Europe and how it affects the lives of Irish citizens among Irish primary pupils in a curriculum friendly manner.

Since the first year of the Programme in 2011-2012, the Blue Star Programme has had just over 1,000 primary school registrations across the country, as the Programmes grows from strength to strength!

So come take part, and let’s get creative about Europe!


-The Blue Star Programme Team


The Blue Star Programme is extremely conscious of the current situation with the pandemic and the challenges  facing schools returning in September. We were delighted to see so many participating schools complete the Programme in a various of ways since March 2020, epitomising the amazing creativity of the teachers and pupils, but also the adaptability of the Programme. We have taken the lessons on board from this experience, and we will be once again providing a Programme that is fully flexible, curriculum-friendly, with a greater online element than ever before.

We have plans in place to make the Programme as easy as possible to complete, and we will be more than happy to discuss with schools on an individual basis, how to make completing the Programme as manageable as possible.

So come join us, get in touch, and let’s work together. 💙
