World Down Syndrome Dayhttp://hew.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/55World Down Syndrome Day<div>Wednesday March 21, 2018 is the 13th annual World Down Syndrome Day (WDSD). WDSB is designed to raise awareness of what Down syndrome is, what it means to have Down syndrome, and how people with Down syndrome play a vital role in our lives and communities.  The date for WDSD being, the 21st day of the 3rd month, signifies the uniqueness of the triplication (trisomy) of the 21st chromosome which causes Down syndrome.  </div><div> </div><div>The theme of this year’s WDSD is #WhatIBringToMyCommunity and emphasizes how people with Down syndrome can and do make meaningful contributions throughout their lives – including their schools.</div><div> </div><div>This year, WDSD has provided access to a wide variety of videos. (http://www.downtv.org/down-syndrome-en/videos-syndrome-day/world-down-syndrome-day).  The videos feature people with Down syndrome, their friends and peers describing how they can and do make meaningful contributions and tackle negative attitudes and a lack of knowledge about the potential of people with Down syndrome, which prevents them from having opportunities to make contributions. </div><div><br></div><div>Hewitt's Creek P.S. can show their support for World Down Syndrome Day (WDSD) by encouraging our children and staff to wear “lots of socks” (i.e. colourful / different socks, etc.) on Wednesday, demonstrating that by working together we can make the world a better, more inclusive place for those with Down syndrome.​</div>
