Uplands welcomes Brousseau

Terrace's Paralympic athlete Caleb Brousseau spends a day at Uplands Elementary

Terrace’s Paralympic athlete, sitskier Caleb Brousseau, was given a warm Olympic sendoff at Uplands Elementary School on Tuesday, Feb. 11 before his trip to Sochi, Russia.

The school sang Oh! Canada and this year’s Olympic anthem before presentations to Brousseau from My Mountain Co-op and Terrace mayor Dave Pernarowski.

“When you dream, you have to make sure you follow through right from the beginning to the end,” said Brousseau to the school.

He then spent the day meeting with students in the library, answering their questions about what it’s like to be an Olympic-calibre athlete heading to his first games, a fitting setting as Uplands interim principal Julia Nieckarz-English told Brousseau that the school’s focussed on becoming Olympic level readers and will be thinking of him as they read.
