Lots of Socks – Recognising World Down Syndrome Day

 On Thursday 28 March, everyone at FPS is encouraged to wear coloured, mismatched, bright, long, short – or any other combination of socks – to celebrate World Down Syndrome Day.

 

Why Lots of Socks?

Lots of Socks is a Down Syndrome International campaign to create conversation and bring awareness of Down syndrome. The idea behind the Lots of Socks initiative is that all types, shapes, sizes of the same thing can be unique in their own way, and yet do the same thing.

 

Children understand what socks are, how they look and what they are for, and children understand that no two socks are the same. Lots of Socks is a campaign to create conversation about diversity, uniqueness, inclusion and acceptance. Across the day, teachers will plan activities around the concept of inclusion, and how we can all help each other to feel included.
