This year's school walk was held on Wednesday, 22nd May and students walked a 10km section of the Wicklow Way. Student Council selected Jigsaw, a Youth Mental Health charity, for all its fundraising efforts. Just over €1600 was raised by Stratford students!

Teachers and students from 1st Year to 6th Year went on the walk and the weather proved to be perfect for walking, i.e. no rain!!

Thanks to Ms Brouder and Student Council for arranging the school walk which is always a great way to experience the Dublin mountains, which are so close to school.
