Friendship Day

Friendship Day

On the 18th February, the staff and pupils of Stratford College organised a friendship day for the pupils of Stratford National School.  Each class went over the secondary school hall, where the children played games, had their faces painted, made artwork and played a guessing game of 'How Many Sweets are in the Jar'.

We would like to thank Stratford College for extending the hand of friendship to us all in Stratford NS by planning this great morning for us!

Designing and Making Roller-coasters

For Engineers week (2nd-6th March), the children worked in teams to plan, design and make rollercoasters. 

Each group started with the same materials:

  • Kitchen Rolls
  • Paper Plates
  • Cups
  • Masking Tape
  • Scissors
  • 2 Toy Cars

Each group came up with a unique idea and the roller-coasters were fantastic!  This project was a great opportunity to practice collaboative, creative and problem-solving skills, and most importantly, have fun!
