(Ireland) Kildare: School "celebrates" its new autism classroom; everyone wears blue

Nov 14, 2021, Kildare Now: Kildare school celebrates new ASD Bluebells classroom, sensory room and playroom in Rathangan https://www.kildarenow.com/news/local-news/692998/kildare-school-celebrates-new-asd-bluebells-classroom-sensory-room-and-playroom-in-rathangan.html

Blue was the colour of the day at Bunscoil Bhride on Friday, November 5 as the school celebrated an autism awareness day — Go Blue for Bluebells.

The Rathangan school held the celebration to officially open its new ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) classroom and to educate the entire school community about autism. All the children, teachers and staff were dressed in every shade from sea blue to navy.

The classroom first opened in September 2020 while the sensory room and playroom were completed at the end of September this year.

Unfortunately due to Covid-19, Bunscoil Bhride never got to officially celebrate its opening until now. The class is called Bluebells and the room is bright, modern and full of fun….

Ms Savannah Rowley explained the new facility is hugely important for the pupils. The non-uniform day also raised significant funds for playground equipment for the Bluebells yard.
