The stretcher bond doesn't make a strong wall but is used by bricklayers constructing a cavity wall and they can tie this thin wall to another thin wall at the rear and make it more stable.
Don't go for the easy common stretcher bond.Put the professional's skill to the test and ask for a Flemish bond,where the bricks are laid with alternate headers and stretchers.
