We as a school raised awareness of Autism in a number of ways during Autism Awareness Week (27 – 31 March).
Autism is a lifelong, developmental disability that affects how a person communicates with and relates to other people, and how they experience the world around them.
Every student was given a free bookmark linked with Autism
Year 7 and 8 were asked to create a poster advertising an idiom and its different meanings as part of a competition.
