Watch Juliette, who is in Senior Infants in our school, on Virgin Media news celebrating Autism Awareness Day 2021.
She gives a fantastic sign off to the news report! Well done Juliette!
I met Juliette today, and she gave the best sign-off to a report I've ever seen.
You'll also hear her sing in this clip, which is amazing when you consider her parents were worried she may never speak.
