Aspects of the EU

Plusieurs élèves irlandais de deux collèges ont contribué à l’organisation d’une journée consacrée à l’Union européenne. Ils ont eu l’opportunité de découvrir des pays et de s’informer sur leurs particularités. C’est une journée d’échanges et de convivialité qui permet aux élèves et aux adultes de mieux connaître leurs voisins européens.

Transcript

RTÉ reporter, Orla Walsh: Two small schools came together today in Wexford to celebrate all things European. Scoil Eoin Baste and Boolavogue National School have just one hundred and thirty-six pupils between them, but today they represented more than twenty-five European countries. As part of the Blue Star Programme, forty-two students from both schools were on stalls featuring foods, models of buildings, facts and even traditional clothing from their chosen countries. Their younger schoolmates went on a scavenger hunt through the stalls, finding out European facts. So what are some of the things the students have learned?

Pupil from Boolavogue National School, Blánaid Fogarty: I learned a lot about the countries, the religions and their traditions. My favourite country that I learned about would have to be France. I learned all about the Eiffel Tower, the purpose of it was made for the World’s Fair in 1889.

Pupil from Boolavogue National School, Jack Tyrrell: I’ve learned about all the countries in Europe into detail and I’ve learned about World War I and II. I really enjoyed it. I thought it was much more fun because you’re still doing work but you got to do other stuff that you never got to do.

Pupil from Scoil Eoin Baste, Méabh Rockford: I really like about the programme is making treaty models and we made four models. We made a thatched Irish cottage, the Aqueduct of Segovia, a windmill, a Dutch windmill, and the Atomium in Brussels.

RTÉ reporter, Orla Walsh: The Blue Star Programme is now in its third year and more than one hundred schools across the country are taking part. And according to Boolavogue’s coordinator, it’s been a great success.

Blue Star coordinator and teacher at Boolavogue National School, Julie Sinnott: The children were up endless nights researching facts and they even taught the teachers some things that we didn’t even know before. The programme is so versatile, it can appeal and be used in all classes. We took a whole school approach in both schools, so while we, hum, both teachers who are running the programme have fourth, fifth and sixth class, and we also run the programme right down to Junior Infants.
