Thirteen students who are set to graduate from the Erdiston Special School at term???s end will, tomorrow, Friday, June 6, display a variety of work done over the years.
Under the theme Past, Present and Future, they will showcase art and craft, Egyptian hieroglyphics, essays on places of interest which they have visited, as well as communications tools and technologies used throughout their school life.??
The exhibition will be held at the school on Pine Hill, St. Michael from 10:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m.
Special Needs teacher, Lee Carter, in providing the rationale behind the event, said it was a culmination of activities done in the area of communication.?????It is very important for our students to understand that the world is getting smaller and they must know where we have come from and where we are going.
???Some students utilise technology even better than their teachers and a lot are very knowledgeable about communication and the tools we use today but not in the past,??? she explained.
Noting that the school will also highlight the technology that students can expect to see in the future, Mrs. Carter added that it is hoped that at the end of the exhibition, the students would be able to learn about communicating with others in their environment, including those with disabilities, and discover how, in the future, communication will impact and better their lives.
