  • If you have a long memory, you might recall that Peter FitzSimons hosted the 'Hypothetical', one of the major opening events of the 7th World Down Syndrome Congress, held at Darling Harbour, Sydney in 2000. He was a wonderful moderator on that occasion, much appreciated by the international audience of people with Down syndrome, their families and professionals, and told us that he had enjoyed it enormously.
