Thank you to everyone who came to school with their odd socks today. In the afternoon, we all showed off our footwear and, more importantly, spoke about why we need to raise awareness of this genetic condition. With the help of watching some Newsround clips and talking together, I hope we helped to spread the message of this year’s campaign…leave no one behind.
Mrs Smith our P.E. teacher has been talking to the class about her little niece who has Down’s Syndrome and telling us all about her qualities and what it means to have Down’s Syndrome. To help raise awareness, Mrs Smith asked staff and pupils if they would help celebrate the day by wearing odd socks! P1/2 took up the challenge! Here is a photo of their wonderful array of multi-coloured and mismatched socks!
