The 21st of March is World Down Syndrome day. The significance of this date is that its the 21st day of the 3rd month to signify the uniqueness of the triplication of chromosome 21, which causes Down Syndrome.
It is a worldwide initiative to invite people to wear crazy/ fun socks on this day. The idea of socks was created due to chromosomes are shaped 'like socks' and people with Down Syndrome have an additional chromosome.
To raise awareness of Down Syndrome, we would like to participate. We are asking all staff and children ( and parents if you wish!) to wear the most fun socks ever on the 21st of March.
Please note this is not for a donation, just to raise awareness.
