"Breaking Limits" Inspirational Speaker visit from Bart Gee

As part of our PSHE curriculum and embedding our core value of "Be Brave" we invited Bart Gee to speak to the children.

The children were really engaged with Bart’s words and really took on board his message that difficult, hard and challenge meant that they were all possible. Bart encouraged us to never give up, even when times are tricky because there will be a way to find a solution to the problem. As a child, Bart was told he would never be able to walk and he shared his slow progress in developing the ability to walk and then how he learnt to swim (when he wasn’t too confident). Then, he shared videos of himself completing tasks that he was told at birth by a doctor that he would never complete – playing the piano and completing a triathlon (swim, cycle and run).
