Student Council hosted the Awards Ceremony on Friday, 26th October. The Awards Ceremony celebrates the achievements of excellence by Stratford students in the Leaving Certificate and Junior Cycle, as well as leadership, sporting and extra-curricular activities during the school year 2017-2018.

This year's Keynote Speaker was Noleen from Concern. Student Council are planning on having a Concern Fast on Friday, 7th December to highlight the needs of others. This is also part of Stratford's sustainability goals.

Ms Conlon and the School Choir provided fantastic musical interludes during the ceremony. Two past pupils from 2008 spoke briefly about their memories of Stratford which was terrific to hear! Finally, the Tuck Shop Boys played us out! 

Many thanks to Ms Kenny and Student Council for hosting such a memorable Awards Ceremony. To see more photos, go to the 2018-2019 Gallery.
