8 year old Wesley Daniels has attended Die Sterreweg since he was 3 years old. This lively and mischievous little boy is very sociable and loves playing with his friends.
Wesley has a diagnosis of Spina Bifida and, as a result, is unable to walk. He can, however, crawl and can fairly nimbly climb into his wheelchair on his own. Wesley is able to self-propel his wheelchair completely independently.
Over the last two years Wesley has made huge progress and his therapists decided that he was ready for a more structured learning environment. After some time on the waiting list he was finally accepted this year and started at Carpe Diem School* in George this week.
The staff and his fellow classmates decided that they just had to have a little farewell party for Wes. We are so happy for Wesley as he embarks on his new adventure, but will miss this extremely kind and helpful little boy who is always the first to share his treats and takes great pride in washing and helping to fix his wheelchair.
*Carpe Diem School caters for physical-, learning- and intellectually impaired learners between the ages of 6 and 18 years, that cannot be accommodated in mainstream education.
