5th Class/6th Class
We held a special fundraising book sale for the Childhood Cancer Foundation this week. All the different classes got the chance to donate and buy books for this worthy cause. Well done and a big thank you to Rachel, Aleksandra, Lily, Christine, Aoife, Elsa, Claudia, & Gali in 5th and 6th class who organised the fundraiser with such thoughtfulness, care and efficiency.
This week 5th and 6th class visited DreamSpace at the Microsoft Ireland offices. We had a great time discussing how technology intersects with our lives and how it will affect jobs in the future. We had a tour of the Microsoft building and discussed its architecture and how people work there. We also learned how to code 'Sphero' robots and engaged in challenges in pairs. It was a fantastic day!
5th and 6th class kindly wrote stories for the infant class. They then visited the infant class and read their wonderful stories. Everyone had such a lovely time together!
We would like to congratulate Nathan Keye on his win at the World ISKA Muay Thai Kickboxing Championships in the 10-12years <33kg category. He won by unanimous decision in Cork on Friday,18 October 2019.
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!
