Day of Persons with Disabilities: A lesson of life - Lithuania

On International Day of Persons with Disabilities, our school students from classes 7 a,b,c and d had the opportunity to see with their own eyes that some people with disabilities are strong, fit and lively, and have more stamina than most of us do.

Irena Perminiene is the honorary citizen of our district, multiple European and World Champion of athletics, the participant and vice-champion of the Paralympic Games. She talked about her experiences and shared her views on a healthy lifestyle. The guest organised morning exercises for each class and treated them with fresh fruit juice. The sports woman not only displayed her physical and psychological strength, but also taught the students a lesson of life.
