6th Class Graduation

6th Class Graduation

We had a lovely whole school celebration to honour the wonderful 6th class pupils who are graduating from Stratford N.S.  The parents and families of the 6th class pupils joined us in the hall and enjoyed music and poetry performed by all the pupils from 1st- 5th class.  6th class read out their memories and messages of thanks and were awarded certificates.  It was a great send off for the the children and we wish them the best of luck in secondary school next year!

Bank of Ireland came in to 5th and 6th class to do a 'Dragons Den' style workshop with the class.  In groups, the children had to create a business, draw up a business plan, do market research and create a marketing capaign for their product.  The children created businesses selling healthy smoothies, solar powered cars, a recycled amusement park and a pet shop that was also a charity which rehibilitated abadoned pets.  They then pitched their ideas to the 'Dragons' and all receive an investment of 'Bizbucks'.

It was an extremely enjoyable workshop and thank you to Mark Ryan and Bank of Ireland for facilitating it.
