Piloting the Yellow Flag in Froebel College


The Irish Traveller Movement piloted the Yellow Flag for the first time in a Higher Education Institute, Froebel College of Education in Blackrock D4. Froebel College is one of five colleges in the Republic recognised by the DES  for the training and education of Primary School Teachers. Froebel College participated on the programme in 2010/11. The pilot took the form of Action Research to see if the YFP could be transferred from schools to a Higher Education Institution and this is the Report detailing the process and its finding's.



ITM Froebel Report

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
