General Currie Elementary School

A CARING COMMUNITY – LEARNING FOR A LIFETIME

Michael Bortolotto Guest Speaker Visit

We are very excited to have Michael Bortoloto visiting the school as a guest speaker.  Michael is true inspiration to all.  At birth, Michael was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy.  Through sheer determination he learned to walk, use his arms, hands and fingers and flourished successfully despite being told “no” by society.   I have seen him speak before and he is truly an amazing person! 

We appreciate the support from our PAC as we are very lucky to have Michael coming to our school to talk to the students about accepting children and youth who are different from them and to be teaching them about how the power of a single thought can change into actions, experiences and situations that can be kind and helpful towards other people. Parents are invited to attend the workshop that their child(ren) will be a part of.
