Thurs 2nd April – World Autism Day – April Autism Awareness Month

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:
