As today is ‘World Autism Day’ and April is ‘Autism Awareness’ month, our activities and links today tie in with this topic. We, at Piercestown N.S. are particularly proud of all of our school community this year, since we opened our newest class in September 2019. Our children have worked hard to promote and create the most wonderful inclusive environment, which is learning that goes far beyond the cover of any text book. So for today:
Practice some lámh at home with your family. Say hello, show them home, say thank you.

- Go on a blue scavenger hunt
- Make some blue arts and crafts
- Wear something blue and upload a photo to the website for our video!
Can you remember you lámh song – ‘Count on me’ by Bruno Mars or ‘You’ve got a Friend in Me’ by Woody from Toy Story. Teach someone in your family some of the signage!
