To mark World Down Syndrome Day, our school celebrated with an Odd Socks/ Lots of Socks Day on Tuesday 21st March. The main concept was simple: everyone wears bright, colourful, funky, socks – these can also be mismatched/odd! It was a visual celebration of individuality and what makes us all unique. Also, chromosomes under a microscope look a bit like socks. A person with Down Syndrome has 3 copies of the 21st chromosome, or an extra funky sock!
It was a really fun day with plenty of classes taking part in informative activities. All money raised from the day went to The DEN, our special needs class.
Thanks to all who contributed and for everyones continued support. Special thanks to Room 2 who provided us with our pictures below.
