Celebrating World Autism Day

World Autism Awareness Day Tuesday April 2nd 2019

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.  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.  Fourth class pupil Levi Culleton spoke to the assembled classes on the subject on Friday last, explaining the difficulties that autistic people encounter daily. He proudly stated that he is very happy in St. Fiacc’s N.S.

Here are the words spoken by Levi to the assembly:

“Greetings, students and teachers.

My name is Levi and I would like to talk about autism.

To some of ye who know me, I have autism.  I look the very same as all of ye; the only difference is that my brain is wired different.  I’m very proud of who I am as having autism does not change me.

 I can still do the same as someone who does not have autism.

I do find it difficult to sit in one spot and also to make friends and I don’t like loud noises or people shouting at me, but hey!  I’m still me!

Sometimes I get upset and angry and I find it hard to express myself and to feel ok again.

But on a happy note I love coming to school at St. Fiacc’s and just being….  LEVI!

Thank you all!”

Well done Levi! To celebrate World Autism Awareness Day on April 2nd, the pupils are encouraged to wear in their favourite t-shirt!
