Congratulations to Eva (TY), Sophie (5th Year), Alexey (TY) and Senan (3rd Year) who won the annual Ides of March Classical Studies quiz on Thursday, March 21st in a nail-biting finish of two tie-breaker questions! 

Four teams from Stratford College went to the Ides of March Classics quiz in Mount Anville. The four teams had to answer questions about the Classical Studies Junior and Leaving Certificate syllabus. The Stratford teams all came within the top ten teams at the end of the night.

Table 13 made up of Eva, Alexey, Sophie and Senan were the night's winning team. We won a trophy for the school and €20 each. I hope we can do well again next year. Thanks to Ms Donohoe for all her support.
