There was a sea of blue in St. Michael’s N.S. on Friday 16th April as we celebrated our first annual Autism Awareness Day on Friday 16th April. The children in each class took part in various lessons throughout the day to raise awareness about autism. They learned what autism is, how to communicate with someone with autism, and how we could make school life easier for someone with autism. We wore blue on the day in support of autism awareness.
We also completed a whole-school collaborative art project which you can view below. The puzzle pattern reflects the complexity of the autism spectrum. It also shows that although we all have different personalities and abilities, we all fit together to create one amazing school community.
The children engaged really well and learned a lot! Well done boys and girls!
Our infants were very busy in the lead up to Easter this year. We learned all about the Easter story in religion and why we celebrate Easter. We learned some Easter vocabulary in Irish and played some Easter games. We also created our own Easter Bunnies and Easter Chicks!
With St. Patrick’s Day looking a little different for everyone this year, we were delighted to be able to celebrate as normal in school. We held a Lá Glás which always adds excitement to this very special day. We also completed a few different art activities.
We made fingerprint Pots of Gold using paint and crepe paper.
