St Mary’s becomes a European Parliament Ambassador School

Congratulations to our Transition Year Students who have successfully completed the European Parliament Ambassador School Programme. Because of their dedication, enthusiasm and hard-work, their recent evaluation by representatives of the European Parliament has earned our school the prestigious honour of officially becoming a European Parliament Ambassador School.
They were presented with their plaque and certificates at an impressive ceremony on Friday 12th April.

The European Parliament Ambassador School Programme is now in its fourth year and over seven hundred schools across the EU have completed the programme. Sixty secondary schools in Ireland are taking part this year. The programme reaches out to students and first-time voters and aims to increase awareness of Europe, citizenship and political choice among young people.
