Most importantly, Odd Socks Day is designed to be fun! It’s an opportunity to encourage people to express themselves and celebrate their individuality and what makes us all unique!

There is no pressure to wear the latest fashion or to buy expensive costumes.  All you have to do to take part is wear odd socks to your school, at work of at home, it couldn’t be simpler!  Odd Socks day will take place on the first day of Anti-Bullying Week each year to help raise awareness of bullying. Odd Socks Day for Junior School will take place in Thornhill College on Monday 15th November 2021, no money is required.  There will be a  Sock it to Me Google Classroom where pupils can upload their photos of their socks but also what else / who else they have ‘socked’ with prizes for the best ‘socked’ pictures.
