Yellow Flag Programme – Applications
for September 2014 /15.
The Irish Traveller Movement is now seeking applications from schools that are interested in running the Yellow Flag Intercultural Programme in their school in September 2014 – June 2015.
The Yellow Flag is a practical schools based programme and award scheme which recognises and supports a schools work in promoting diversity and inclusion. The programme works through an 8 practical steps model which allows schools to apply those steps to the day to day running of the school. It is a whole school approach which involves working jointly at all levels of school life from students, teachers and principle, ancillary staff, board of management, parent and the wider community.
The Programme is open to both Primary and Secondary Schools but school criteria and funding restrictions do limit the amount of schools who can participate.
If you would like to get involved please register your schools interest by reading the Criteria below and completing the Application Form.
Closing date for applications: Monday 14th April 2014.
Completed applications can be emailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Or posted to: Yellow Flag Programme, Irish Traveller Movement, 4/5 Eustace Street, Dublin 2.
If you have any queries please don’t hesitate to contact either Sara Russell or Sinead O’Brien on 01 679 6577, Sara can also be contacted on 087 241 0258.

The Yellow Flag Programme is a fantastic initiative which seeks to bring the issues of interculturalism, equality and diversity into the whole-school programme and allows schools to apply them to the day to day running of the school. Moreover, Yellow Flag also promotes the idea of parents and the community working in conjunction with students and educators in order to ensure that the benefits of the programme are not just confined to the classroom.
