8am – 3pm
Celebrate World Down Syndrome Day and join the journey to build a more inclusive society for all persons with Down syndrome. For the 14th year, Down Syndrome Association (Singapore) will celebrate this event, aiming to raise awareness and exemplify the abilities of persons with Down syndrome while advocating equal rights for them.
Guest-of-Honour, Mr. Ong Ye Kung, Minister of Education will be flagging off the event’s signature community walk at 8am. This will be followed by the family carnival and performances from the DSA(S) Fusion & Creative Dance, DSA(S) Drum Prodigy Ensemble, DSA(S) Aikido and DSA(S) Zumba.
‘Leave No One Behind’ is the theme of this year’s celebration, highlighting the lack of understanding within the community about the potential of persons with Down syndrome, and the importance for everyone to come together, embrace differences and work towards an inclusive society.
