We are delighted to welcome your School into the Yellow Flag Intercultural Schools Programme!
The Yellow Flag Programme is an intercultural education model that was developed by the Irish Traveller Movement(ITM) in 2008. It works with students, staff, management, parents and the wider community so that issues of diversity and equality are not merely seen as ‘school subjects’ but can be understood and taken outside the school setting into everyday life.
We know from our years’ experience working with many primary and post-primary schools, that the support from the Principal is key in helping the link teachers and Diversity Committee to spread the message of diversity and interculturalism throughout the whole school community and beyond.
We understand that there are many demands on school principals and that any time you can give to Yellow Flag will be beneficial to the programme. Getting behind the programme, supporting the link teacher and promoting the progress of the 8 steps in your school will help highlight the values of Yellow Flag that already exist within your school community, and recognise where work needs to be done to make the school feel inclusive to all.
