A Very Special Walk 2008 - The Celebration!

A Very Special Walk 2008 (AVSW 2008) will take all participants on a walk around the Ang Mo Kio neighbourhood, culminating in a carnival at the Pathlight School.The event aims to promote autism awareness amongst the community.

People with autism can be contributing members of society, given the right education and opportunities. These opportunities will be provided through the projects run by the Social Enterprise Unit and we hope to raise funds towards this cause.

Into Our 4th Year!

A Very Special Walk (AVSW) has always been about Integration.

AVSW was first initiated by the Gryphons Alumni (ex- Raffles Institution Scouts) in 2005, raising funds for projects meant to further enhance the employability of the autism community, and hence increase their chances of integrating into mainstream society.

In AVSW 2006, the integration took a different form of having 3 schools, who tread very different paths yet came together to make the event a success. The tag line "Many paths, One goal" truly reflected the unique partnership between Chong Boon Secondary School, Raffles Institution Scouts Group and Pathlight School.

In AVSW 2007, the tripartite partnership continued as we moved on, Breaking Barriers together.

This year, through AVSW 2008 we will be celebrating successful partnerships. Integration would not have happened, if not for the on-going partnerships which embrace the differences, the talents and the uniqueness of each and everyone of us... with or without autism.
