We are delighted that the art work of one of our Year 11 students has been used in two documents produced by the Education Authority Autism Advisory and Intervention Service.

Leah Sloan designed the cover and the logo for the ‘Stepping Up’ resource and a ‘Staying Safe – Dealing with COVID-19’ booklet for post primary students.

 

The inspiration of Leah’s design for the Staying Safe booklet is as follows: –

“I chose a lotus flower to symbolise strength, beauty, resilience and an awakened mind. Despite being born into dark, gloomy, challenging conditions, where hope for such beautiful life seems doubtful, the lotus grows and rises above adversity. If we, the human race, are to gain more understanding, more kindness and more compassion, we must also rise to the hardships and challenges we currently face, just as the lotus does.”
