Check out our amazing four pieces of collaborative art that you can do with your students. Don’t hesitate to upload your art to our padlet. You will also find some information below about Jean Monnet and Simone Veil, two key figures of the history of the European Union.

Simone Veil was certainly not the only woman of influence in Europe. Have a look at this video to learn more about the many women who have contributed to what the European Union is like today.

    Europe Day is on 9th May.

We had our Europe Day Zoom Quizzes. It was fabulous to connect with so many children across Ireland, France, Spain, Greece, Poland, Romania, Moldova and Armenia. Irish MEPs have donated the prizes which will be sent to each class taking part.
