The Surrey School District will be hosting its second-annual Youth with Autism Conference early in the new year.

The conference will be held on Friday, Jan. 24 and is intended for students in Grades 4-8 who are on the autism spectrum.

The districtwide event is a unique opportunity for autistic students to gather together and have fun in a variety of workshops focusing on art, drama, soccer, science, personal relationships, and more.

In addition, students will hear a keynote presentation from young adults on the spectrum who will share their life experiences, as well as see a choral presentation by The Mayday Club Youth Choir (voices of Neurodiversity). There will also be morning refreshments and a group lunch.

The all-day conference takes place at École Salish Secondary, 7278 184 St.

If you would like your child to attend, please speak to their Integration Support Teacher or their Learner Support Teacher, or contact integration teacher Marissa Bourke at
