St. Fintan's High School

Dyslexia Awareness Week

We have had a very successful week celebrating Dyslexia Awareness in our school. Red ribbon badges were distributed to teachers at the start of the week and students created red friendship bracelets at two special lunchtime workshops! Red cupcakes were on sale in the cafeteria on Thursday and much enjoyed by all. Our school was lit up in red on Thursday evening and classes during the week focused on creating awareness around Dyslexia.

As part of the continuing Dyslexia Awareness Campaign, a short piece was played over the intercom outlining the Strengths of Dyslexic Thinking (see link below) during period 2 on Friday morning.
