Past Pupil and documentary maker Nicholas Ryan-Purcell returns to his alma mater

Delighted to welcome back past pupil and documentary maker Nicholas Ryan-Purcell to the school where students got an opportunity to watch his documentary "This is Nicholas - Living with Autism Spectrum Disorder".

The new documentary completed in May 2018 explores an individual's own journey of living with Aspergers Syndrome (Autism Spectrum Disorder) but also depression, which was brought on by an early childhood trauma.

Nicholas gave the students an opportunity to ask him questions about his life and documentary making after the students had viewed the documentary.

The above photograph shows from L to R: Ms. Karen O' Donnell (Principal), Ms. Teresa O' Connor, Nicholas Ryan-Purcell, Ms. Catherine Ryan, Calvin O' Brien (President of the Students' Council at Nenagh CBS), Mr. Dermot Brislane (Deputy Principal).

It is great to see Nicholas has pursued his interest in video making and giving the wider public an insight into life living with Aspergers Syndrome. Well done Nicholas.
