On Friday, 27th October, Ciara Norton from An Taisce was the Guest Speaker at the annual Stratford Awards Ceremony. The main highlight was the raising of the third Green Flag for Water after the Awards Ceremony was over. Ms Donohoe spoke passionately about the importance of Green Schools and how every little effort that each of us make, does make a difference.

The Awards Ceremony also celebrated the academic, sporting and extra-curricular excellence of our many students. The packed hall was also treated to a variety of musical delights from the school choir and 1st Year flautist Ayush Tambde. Thanks to Ms. Kenny, the Student Council, Ms. Conlon, Brendan and the office staff for all the work that went into making a most memorable morning of celebration. Thanks to all the past-pupils, parents and guardians who also joined us for the ceremonies.
