August 13, 2019
FERGUS, Ontario – On August 12, four-time Paralympic Champion, Patrick Anderson visited Centre Wellington District High School to film an inspirational and instructional video about wheelchair basketball for Upper Grand District School Board students to learn from this school year.
With the help of UGDSB teachers Andy Speers, Emma Reay, Jenn Apgar, Dana Machin, and UGDSB Superintendent of Education Cheryl Van Ooteghem, Anderson was able to piece together a fun video for students that not only shows them the fundamentals of the sport but also teaches students to work together as a team and have fun.
Anderson, a UGDSB graduate, has leant his talents to the UGDSB in the past by sharing his story with students and always urging students to treat each other with kindness.
UGDSB staff are excited to see the final video and be able to share the experience of wheelchair basketball with students.
