Skerries Community College is delighted to announce that it has been chosen to take part in the Irish
Traveller Movement’s Yellow Flag intercultural schools project! The Yellow Flag Programme will be run
along the same lines as the Green Schools Project; on completion of a series of steps the school will be
awarded (with your help!) a Yellow Flag in recognition of its commitment to supporting inclusion &
celebrating diversity. This programme is all about celebrating all the different cultures and nationalities in
the school, breaking down prejudices and learning more about each other
The Irish Traveller Movement invites all Yellow Flag schools and students to enter an Art Competition to
design a Visual or Audio Visual art piece around the themes of Anti-Racism, Celebrating Diversity and or
Supporting Inclusion. It is a great opportunity for schools and students to engage in the themes of the
Yellow Flag Programme and promotes greater participation and ownership. The winning entry may be used
on official Yellow Flag publicity.
• Closing date: Applications must be received on or by the 23 March 2018.
