A Very Special Walk 2011 - There's A Hero In Me!

A Very Special Walk 2011 (AVSW 2011) will take all participants on a walk around Bishan Park, ending with a prize-giving ceremony back at the Pathlight School. The event aims to promote autism awareness amongst the community. This year, the tag line "There's A Hero In Me!" highlights our aim to find the hero in each of us as we raise funds for Post-School Options for Persons with Autism.

Into Our 6th 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.

Through AVSW 2008 we celebrated 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.

In AVSW 2010, we enjoyed the Hollywood Experience by watching various movies and indulging in snacks produced and sold by our students. Pathlight gave back to society by raising funds for our sister school - Eden School Building Fund.
