Our first Rock Your Socks and pyjamas day was a big success! I even went as far as to wear an odd pair of shoes with my special pink and green socks which had been designed and made in our local Woolpower factory! It was wonderful to meet students in their crazy and colourful socks and even though many students and staff were dressed in their pyjamas we still maintained a calm and orderly learning environment and kept high expectations for all. Although it was fun for us to come to school in cozy clothes it was also an important way to celebrate that we are all different...and that is a good thing! All class mentors have been working with their students to raise awareness of Down Syndrome and the importance of inclusion and acceptance.
