St. Boniface supports World Autism Awareness Day

St. Boniface supports World Autism Awareness Day. – Tuesday April 3rd, 2018

Please wear light blue to school on Tuesday April 3rd to show our Panther Support to those living with Autism.

Students who are wearing Blue in support of Autism Awareness will be entered into a draw for a chance to win a prize.

A great big THANK YOU to the Stoneman Family, who have generously donated gift cards for prizes.

World Autism Awareness Day (WAAD) aims to put a spotlight on the hurdles that people with autism – and others living with autism – face every day. As a growing global health issue owing to its increasing exposure in the press and common knowledge, autism is an issue that is only gaining more understanding – and WAAD activities are planned every year to further increase and develop world knowledge of children and adults who have autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

What’s more, World Autism Awareness Day goes one step further to celebrate the unique talents of those with autism, while putting a huge focus on the warm embrace and welcome that these skills deserve through community events around the globe.
