Neurodiversity Celebration Week

19th March 21

This week has been Neurodiversity Celebration Week, which has been marked by an assembly and an ongoing creative challenge at DLD. Neurodiversity is based on the idea that everyone’s brain works differently and that we all have our own unique way of thinking and experiencing the world.

Students were challenged to submit a creative piece of work which celebrates Neurodiversity, either relating to their personal experiences or recognizing the experience of others. Left entirely open to interpretation, the submissions reflected the diverse strengths of students within the college and included artwork, logos, videos, posters, poems, film critiques, photographs and essays.

The panel of judges are considering all the entries today and both a Lower School and Year 12-14 winner will be announced next week, but in the meantime above are just a handful of the excellent range of entries received.
