On Tuesday, 20th November Junior Cycle Classical Studies teachers had the first in-service training day on the newly revised curriculum. Stratford College was part of this process.

According to the NCCA website: "Classical Studies at Junior Cycle focuses on the study of the life and culture of Ancient Greece and Rome and of their continuing influence on the world today. This syllabus is for first, second and third year students in post-primary education. It is assessed by examination at the end of third year at Higher and Ordinary levels." 

Classics, in this new revision, will be taken by first year students from September 2019.

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.
