Lots of Socks for Down Syndrome Day

‘Lots of Socks’ for Down Syndrome Day

 

Down Syndrome Awareness Day was the 21st of March and if you did not know that, where have you been?! A video, featuring mothers and their children with Down Syndrome playing carpool karaoke has gone viral on social media – and it is wonderful! One of the children in the video is the cousin of one of the girls in our nursery. This video shows her demonstrating how to do the now infamous hand gestures to her friends… As part of the Wellington community, you will know that Drumley children are exceptionally good at accompanying songs with hand gestures!

In addition to the video, the children also took part in the annual ‘Lots of Socks’ campaign, by wearing mismatching or bright socks. Why socks you might ask? Well, chromosomes look like socks and people with Down’s syndrome have an extra chromosome! “Lots of Socks” is acknowledged around the world as being associated with Down’s syndrome and we were proud to be a part of it.
