SENIA Student Award nomination

As you may know Sean Wright (Grade 9) has been nominated for the Senia Student Award for his presentations last year to the community members about his learning disabilities. He is meeting the criteria in particular for self-advocacy and promoting the awareness of special needs in the community.

As I am collecting resources for the nominating, I’d like to get some feedback from you who were participates last year of how you felt and what has been changed after hearing him advocate for himself.

Please let me know if you are willing to take the part of it and I will contact you with more details.

Confucius (551–479 BC)was a Chinese educator, editor, politician, and philosopher of Chinese history.

 

Confucius said, Teaching students without discrimination. Men at their birth are much the same in their natures. Due to different education and environments, some grows to be good, others bad. The bad, if he receives proper education and mends his ways, should be forgiven of his past.
