We are looking forward to supporting this day at St. John's for the first time. We are going to use the day to draw attention to what Down's Syndrome is and how we can play and learn happily at St. John's along side children and adults who have Down's Syndrome.
Children and adults with Down's Syndrome are born with an extra chromosome, 47 instead of 46. To recognise and learn about this extra chromosome we are asking children to wear one extra 'thing' with their school uniform for the day, for example a hat, scarf, false moustache, shorts on top of trousers etc. We are not fundraising, no money needs to be brought to school.
Parents are invited to visit the UK's Down Syndrome page to find out more about Downs' Syndrome www.downs-syndrome.org.uk
