Down Syndrome and ADHD - Raising awareness!

27th October 2021

October is Down Syndrome and ADHD awareness month. BGE celebrated this on Wednesday 27th October through:

  • 9A’s assembly was on Down Syndrome and ADHD to give students a greater awareness of the challenges and support other students’ needs.
  • 9A students and some members of staff wore miss-matching or ‘happy socks’ socks. These are typically worn on March 21st during World Down Syndrome day. Since October is the Down Syndrome awareness month, they still came in handy.
