Odd Socks Day 2020 – Celebrating Difference in an Inclusive Way

by | Jul 8, 2020

With schools reopening in September we are already planning for Anti-Bullying Week 2020 United Against Bullying.

One of our favourite days in Anti-Bullying Week is Odd Socks Day. For 2020 it will be taking place on Monday 16th November 2020.

Odd Socks Day 2020 will be a great opportunity to celebrate difference, and it’s easy for everyone at your school to get involved (no expensive costumes to buy!)

Every year the Anti-Bullying Alliance releases new resources for Odd Socks Day, and Andy Day and the Odd Socks create a new song and video. This has been happening since 2017 now, so there’s a fantastic collection of past resources and songs.

Here’s some of the songs by Andy Day and the Odd Socks from Odd Socks Days gone by:

Change – Odd Socks Day 2019

Choose Respect – Odd Socks Day 2018

Unique – Odd Socks Day 2017

So why not make use of these fantastic resources and celebrate Odd Socks Day 2020 at your school or workplace.
