 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:

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 must be supported in becoming a national programme. It must be mainstreamed. From there, it will have the capacity to do for diversity what another marvellous programme, the Green Schools/Green Flag Programme, has achieved for environmental awareness among the huge constituency of children, parents, teachers, and communities which it reaches out to so effectively across the State
