  • Personal Project – Raising Awareness for Autism

Hi! For my personal project I am working on raising awareness for autism. So I will be hosting an awareness week where I will be posting a fact on the daily everyday and displaying brochures in the foyer which you guys can use to answer a survey (quiz) at the end of the week about autism spectrum disorder.

The tutor with the most people with correct answers will win a prize!
It would be very helpful if you could participate.

Fact Day #2&3: (sorry!)

#2
The term “spectrum” reflects the wide variation in challenges and strengths held by each person as all people have different symptoms. Also includes Asperger’s syndrome and Pathological Demand Avoidance.

#3
The term with the least negative connotation when surveyed specialists, people on the spectrum and their families for a person with ASD was “on the spectrum”. This is because this humanises the person on the spectrum by putting the word person before the autism. This emphasises the fact that they are the same human as everyone else.

Thank you! (Kasumi.S)

  • Books & Brownies (Repeat)

Celebrate your vacation reading with Books and Brownies during lunch this Thursday. Bring a book to read, chew on a brownie, and chat with friends about what you read over the break. (Ms. Katy)

HIGH SCHOOL ONLY

  • HS Book of the Day

Students who studied conflict minerals in science will be transfixed by this novel set during the Great Marange Diamond Rush & the brutal regime of Zimbabwe’s former President Mugabe. The term blood diamond will weigh a little heavier after this read. #hsbookoftheday #yislearning (Ms. Katy)
