Primary schools

Bring Daffodil Day to your primary school this year by turning your school or screens yellow to celebrate 35 years of Daffodil Day in Ireland.

  • Students love a non-uniform day so ask each student to wear as much yellow as they can instead of their uniforms in exchange for a donation.
  • We'll provide you with age appropriate daffodil colouring/craft pages to help cover the classroom or students' homes in daffodils, and a fun physical activity to get everyone moving during activity time

Secondary Schools and Colleges

There are many ways you and your students can get involved this Daffodil Day. 

  • Organise a Carnival Event. Have students create stalls across the school they can visit. This could be a baked goods stall, bric a brac stands etc. They can have carnival games too like get the ring on the hoop or organise a movie time.
  • Have a Daffodil Day Treasure Hunt. Have students find the hidden treasures placed throughout the school 
  • Create a Steps challenge. Get students to sign up to cover a set amount of steps every day over a set period of time.
  • Daffodil Day Your Way. Come up with your own ideas and build an event around this.
