We are extremely proud of Haydon, Year 11, who has been selected as a Young Ambassador for the National Autistic Society.
Haydon will now work with other Ambassadors across the country to raise awareness and help to develop an understanding and acceptance of Autism.
After submitting a CV and participating in a telephone interview, Haydon was chosen from a large number of applicants and will now represent the North East, helping to drive change.
He will undertake the role for two years and will meet with other Ambassadors in London every two to three months – while working on campaigns between meetings.
Previous Ambassadors have spoken to MPs in Parliament and designed and developed awareness campaigns for schools.
Haydon said. “I’m delighted that I’ve been chosen to give people with Autism a voice in the North East. Our area is already a very accepting place and it will be great to showcase Autism in a positive way.”
Mrs Gibb, Learning Support Assistant said:” I’m very proud of Haydon – he is a role model for our students.”
We wish Haydon the best of luck in his exciting new role.
