Sports Day was held on Tuesday afternoon, 14th May and it was a glorious afternoon! Admittedly it was meant to be the previous Thursday but rain stopped play ...

Ms Finnegan had organised basketball and soccer blitzes, as well as the highly competitive tug-of-war event and three-legged races (with many innovative approaches taken by some students!)

A huge thanks to Ms Finnegan and all the students who helped her run Sports Day. Thanks too to Brendan for cutting the grass. It was also wonderful to see the newly painted basketball courts in action. Thanks too to Emma Smyth and Adam Eppel for all the beautiful photographs taken with our new school camera. Thanks too to the 1st Year Digital Media Team - Josh Taylor, Kate O'Neill and Sarah Dunne - for their photographic work on Sports Day.

Implementing Stratford’s Digital Learning Framework plan: Windows 10 upgrade

Our ambition at Stratford College has always been to foster independent learning.

In order to implement aspects of this standard Stratford upgraded all its computers to Windows 10 from Windows 7 over the summer.

As Windows 10 needs a lot more computer resources to run than Windows 7, upgrading computer hardware was necessary. This involved replacing old PC’s (pre-2014) with 10 new PC’s (with Solid State Drives). The PC’s in the Computer Lab and in the classrooms have had extra RAM installed and their hard drive replaced with a Solid State Drive. The old pre-2014 PC’s have been redeployed for use in Computer Science classes and for browsing the Web.

This is the second part of a two year programme where last year we upgraded our firewall and was one of the pilot schools to introduce Leaving Certificate Computer Science.
