Adam Harris Visit- Coláiste Gleann Lí
Coláiste Gleann Lí hosted Keynote Speaker Adam Harris on the 27th February to launch Diversity Week at the school. As part of this week numerous events are being hosted to shine a light on difference and to raise an awareness of Diversity. Students and Staff all gathered in the School assembly for what was a wonderful and enlightening session with Adam who spoke about what it is like to live with Autism.
Adam Harris is a 23 year old social entrepreneur, Autism advocate and Founder-CEO of AsIAm.ie, an organisation committed to building a more Autism-friendly society in Ireland. Adam established AsIAm.ie based on his own experiences of growing up with Asperger’s Syndrome, a condition on the Autism Spectrum.
The session led to great questions from our students and lead to wonderful discussions and dialogue on what it means to be different and how no two people are the same. Adam was introduced by our MC and Photographer for the day, student Donald Walsh. The event was funded by the School Completion Programme, and the school wishes to thank Ms. Norma Thompson for her involvement and a special word of thanks to Ms. Margaret Kenny for organising the session and bringing the event all together.
Don't miss out, get a team together. A great night guaranteed.
