6th Year Graduation, 15th May 2015

6th Year Graduation, 15th May 2015

On Friday, 15th May, the school hall was beautifully arranged by Mrs. Bondi and the Student Council for the 6th Year Graduation. The speeches were thought provoking by Ms. Gordon, Ms. Donohoe, Student Council Representatives and the Secretary of the Stratford College Parents Association. There were a number of musical interludes provided by the students and a terrific 6th Year Graduation video. Parents, teachers, friends and past-pupils enjoyed a wonderful meal managed by parents from both Stratford National School and Stratford College. Thank you to Brendan also for having the hall and school looking so splendid.

Sports Day, 7th May 2015

Sports Day, 7th May 2015

This year's Sports Day - Thursday, 7th May - was a gloriously sunny day, which slotted between days of torrential rain. Everyone was delighted, none more so than Ms. Finnegan and her group of helpers. The Sports Day timetable and teams were posted a week in advance, so that everyone knew what they had to do on the day. What a busy day for all concerned - Junior and Senior Basketball, Junior and Senior Soccer, 3-legged races for all years, Junior and Senior Sprints, Junior and Senior Tug-of-War, as well as the obstacle course and the sumo wrestling. Thank you very much Ms. Finnegan for a fantastic sporting day! Go to the Sports blog for more sporting activities.

School Walk, 27th April 2015

School Walk, 27th April 2015

The long-term weather forecast for Monday, 27th April had been for snow. So with some trepidation the whole school left  Stratford College at 9am basking in sunshine - what lay ahead no-one could tell! The school set off from Crone Wood car park, to walk a part of the Wicklow Way which skirts Djouce Mountain. With huge black clouds on the horizon the pace set by Ms. Kenny and Ms. Finnegan was fast. After a few food and drinks breaks - somewhat shorter than usual - the 10km walk ended above Lough Tay on the Roundwood-Glendalough road. The walk was completed in a record time of 3 hours.  Everyone was just seated down in their bus ... when it started to snow!  Thanks to the 5th Year LCVP class and Ms. Brouder for organising a great day which was all in aid of the Irish Heart Foundation.  Go to the LCVP/Business blog for more details and photos.

Dress-up Day for Festival of Purim and World Book Day, 5th March 2015

Purim and World Book Day were both celebrated this year on Thursday, 5th March. The Student Council organised a dress-up day with the theme of "Careers". Students and staff went to great lengths to come into school in a variety of career related uniforms. Student Council asked all students to bring in money to give to Barnardos. The TY students organised a Book Sale on the same day in aid of St. Michael's House. The combination of Purim and World Book Day meant that there was a great buzz around the school during the day! Well done to everyone! Go to the Student Council Blog and the Library Blog for more details.
