Boolavogue Blue Star ProgrammeThe Blue Star 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, the European Commission Representation in Ireland and the European Parliament Information Office in Ireland.

The Blue Star Programme aims to introduce participants (pupils, teachers, parents and the wider community) to the EU; what it means and how it works.  The Programme also aims to foster a strong sense of awareness of the EU among its participants that reaches far beyond the school walls and out into the wider community.

Each year we mark Europe Day in our school with different events such as quizzes and “handshake for Europe”. Our first Europe Day celebration was even televised live on RTE, check us out here!
