MOYDERWELL Mercy Primary School had a special visitor on Wednesday to view a project on the European Union.

The school took part in the Blue Star Programme which is an education initiative for primary school pupils across Ireland.

The idea of the Programme is to foster better understanding and knowledge of the European Union and how it affects the lives of Irish citizens among primary pupils through classroom projects and activities.

“It gives the children an idea of the vastness and the complexity of the European institution,” said Principal, Moira Quinlan. “Ms Fuller’s Sixth Class co-ordinated the project and took on a more in-depth study which can be seen on the walls here in the school hall. The other senior classes each did projects on a particular country.”

The Hungarian Ambassador, István Pálffy, visited the school with his wife to see the children’s work on Wednesday and he was very impressed.

The school, which has pupils of over 40 nationalities, also held an international food day in May which was a big success with parents and pupils bringing in a dish from their own country, celebrating the many cultures in Moyderwell.
