Event Time: All day As part of the Qatar Foundation's efforts to raise awareness and support for Autism, Qatar Academy Al-Wakra has celebrated World Autism Day on Thursday, 31 March 2022. Many classroom activities took place to help our students better understand Autism. Staff and students from early years through Grade 5 wore blue to support and create autism awareness. Under the supervision of the art teacher, some classes created a bulletin board that showcased their understanding and support of Autism by creating posters and cards. TLC and Learning support staff supported the preschoolers and kindergarten classes by painting their hands in blue colors on a giant whiteboard. The students, along with their teachers, participated in taking photos at the Autism Awareness photo booth that was created for the classes.
