Wombat Class: Bert Gee Visit

On Friday, Wombat Class had a visitor from Bert Gee. Bert is an inspirational speaker who lives with a condition called Arthrogryposis, a disability that severely affects muscles and joint movement. He spoke to us about how he has overcome challenges in his life. We tried to do things the same way he would – having to get up off the floor without the strength in his arms to lift himself up, holding a pen without being able to grip with our fingers, even how to drink a hot cup of tea! Bert showed us how, no matter what difficulty we face, overcoming those difficulties is possible. We saw videos of him playing the piano, and swimming in open water. He left us feeling truly inspired, and ready to face any challenges that come our way!
