European Day 2019

The 3rd to 6th class children of Gortanumera NS under the guidance of Ms Ryan, undertook the Blue Star Programme to further their understanding of the EU from its historical, geographical, cultural and its institutional role.

They embarked on the project in September and on the 9th of May they showcased their hard work through a presentation on European Day which was a celebration and culmination of all they had learned throughout the year.

The children held a European Food Fair where they got to sample the foods of our European neighbours.
We also invited Anne Rabbitte T.D. in to speak to the children about how Europe is important to us and how we as a country is involved in European affairs.
The children had a most enjoyable time and we’re proud to showcase their work on European Day.
