World Down Syndrome Day - March 2015

Down’s Syndrome International encouraged everyone across the world to wear LOTS OF SOCKS on World Down’s Syndrome Day (WDSD) to raise awareness. We came into school with different socks and learnt more about Down's Syndrome. We talked about how wearing different socks can show that people with Down’s syndrome are different but the same. An odd pair of socks may be a different pattern or colour but can still be worn together quite happily if we change our attitudes about having to wear matching socks.

Wearing odd socks for the day was to remind us that the way we think is really important, and makes a difference to whether people with Down’s syndrome feel included or not. None of us like feeling left out, people with Down’s syndrome are no exception.
