World Down Syndrome Day

We celebrated World Down Syndrome Day with a visit from Cheshire Down Syndrome support group. The children and staff all purchased a gingerbread sock biscuit produced by the community. We also wore different socks to show that although we are all different we are all the same. The children have supported this charity for 12 years now and we are so grateful for all of your support.

Why socks? In 2013, the theme of Wearing Odd Socks was initiated to raise awareness. Over time it has also been promoted as Lots of Socks. The idea was created because chromosomes are shaped “like socks” and people with Down syndrome have an extra chromosome. People all over the world wear colourful, attractive, crazy socks on WDSD to get noticed.

Thanks for supporting this great charity. Mrs Jones
