Staff and students at a Stevenage school have donned their odd socks to mark World Down Syndrome Day.
Marriotts School in Brittain Way “wouldn’t change a thing” as they show off their odd socks in celebration of the annual event.
A spokesman said: “This day allows students and their families to come together to celebrate difference and diversity and show the message ‘don’t try and blend in, when you were born to be stand out’.”
World Down Syndrome Day is a global awareness event which this year encouraged people to wear #LotsOfSocks.
The theme for this year’s event was “leave no one behind”.
