These guidelines support the Primary School
Curriculum (1999) and identify the ways in which
intercultural education permeates that curriculum.
The aim of these guidelines is to contribute to the
development of Ireland as an intercultural society
based on a shared sense that language, culture andethnic diversity is valuable. They aim to contribute
to the development of a shared ability and sense of
responsibility to protect for each other the right to
be different and to live free from discrimination.
