A Blue Star is the latest of our academic achievements which involved the entire school community working together. From the youngest to the oldest everyone did some research, learning, art or presentation about Europe. The many aspects of our Unions shared history, culture, art, languages and other aspects of European life were investigated. It proved to be a very worthwhile project. Lucinda Creighton, Minister for European Affairs at the Department of the Taoiseach launched our Blue Flag on February first. We are the only school in Ireland which will have this honour during the Irish Presidency of the European Union.
