Canadian Paralympic Medalist Visits Eastdale CI

Canadian Paralympic Medalist Visits Eastdale CI

Tuesday, April 08, 2014
Categories: Happenings @ TDSB, School Web Stories

Marie-Claire Ross, a two-time gold and silver medalist and a six-time bronze medalist in swimming at the Paralympic Games in Barcelona, Spain and Atlanta, Georgia, recently visited Eastdale CI with an inspiring message to share with students.  Ms Ross was accompanied by her seeing-eye dog, Kya.  The Paralympic star was born with full sight but started to lose her vision in grade four due to a rare degenerative eye condition.  She is now almost completely blind, but that doesn’t stop her.  

She delivered an inspiring message to the staff and students at Eastdale that no matter your setbacks in life, each person has something good inside them that they need to discover and share.  Victoria, one of the students at Eastdale, polished up one of her silver medals with special silver polish and held it up for all to see.  It gleamed brilliantly.  Indeed, Marie-Claire shone her light and encouraged all to do the same. 


Our Mission
