Students at a private school on Sydney’s Lower North Shore have made an incredible gesture to their classmate who lives with a disability.

Callum was born with Global Developmental Delay which has affected his speech and ability to learn.

His mother contacted Ray Hadley, touched by a great show of support her son received.

During a race with students from St Joseph’s College in Hunters Hill, Callum’s peers joined him near the end of the 1500 metres to cross the finish line with him.


Ray has commended the heartwarming show of support.

“It’s just really inspiring stuff and no wonder his mum’s so proud that he’s been so embraced by the school community.”

Channel 9 newsreader Peter Overton agrees and says all schools should be inspired.

“Just warms the heart that story, that there is still a lot of goodness amongst our young people.

“That video should be played in all schools.”
