Europe Week 2021 - what a blast!
For the first time, BFGTOEU organised a Europe Week with a booklet full of resources and activities for the teachers and children. We were delighted to see children using their curiosity and creativity to discover more about the EU and celebrate the club.
The highlight was certainly the Europe Day Zoom quizzes which brought together more than 7,000 children, aged between 7 and 12, from eight different countries – Ireland, France, Greece, Spain, Poland, Romania, Armenia and Moldova. We were very lucky to be joined by Irish MEPs at the end of each quiz for a brief discussion. We even made the Greek papers on 11 May 2021, praising such an innovative way of celebrating Europe day!
