On March 21st, we joined the world in celebrating World Down Syndrome Day. Our social media channels were flooded with odd socks and bright colours as we got together as a community and brought awareness to people with Down syndrome.

“I think it’s rude for being to boss me around like a kid. I want to be the same. I want to be the same as everyone else. I want to get a job, do cooking, get my own job and have my own ideas.”

What is your favourite song?
”Shallow!”
- Rachael Willmott, Belmont Class

Thank you to everyone who joined us in celebrating WDSD in 2019!
