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.
In the lead up to WDSD, we asked some of our students a few questions about dancing, music and what they would like people to know about Down syndrome. Here a just a few of their answers…
“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.”
- Angela Kowalski, Maryland Class
What is your favourite song?

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