Celebrating Lots of Socks for World Down Syndrome Day!!

Our Lady of Consolation was proud to support Down Syndrome Ireland’s Lots of Socks campaign. Every class either watched videos, read stories or completed art activities to learn all about Down Syndrome.

World Down Syndrome Day (WDSD) is celebrated annually on March 21st. The date for WDSD being the 21st day of the 3rd month as people with Down Syndrome are born with an extra / 3rd copy of chromosome 21.

Today, students wore brightly coloured or mismatched socks and donations were taken for Down Syndrome Ireland. A total of €319.95 was raised. Big thanks to all who supported!!
