Down Syndrome Day 2019

Every year World Down Syndrome Day is celebrated on March 21st. This year, the global theme was "Leave No-one Behind." The whole school was also invited to wear odd socks to raise awareness of day. As part of celebrating this day a group of children, who have someone in their family with Down's syndrome or have Down's syndrome themselves, led a whole school assembly to raise awareness and understanding. They explained to the whole school that every single person with Down's syndrome should have the same opportunities as everyone else, in every area of life. It was a wonderful assembly and the whole school was proud of the children's effort and eloquence in raising awareness for Down's syndrome.
