Roots of Empathy

1st class students have been enjoying taking part in the Roots of Empathy a programme, facilitated by Mrs O’Sullivan since last November. The main aim of the programme is to raise levels of empathy and create more respectful and caring relationships. At the heart of the programme is their “teacher”, Baby Ben who visits the class refuilarly with his mom Sharon. The children have Neen getting to know and learning lots about baby Ben and themselves. They have been watching his development, his feelings, how to care for a baby and the bond between Ben and his Mom.
They are excited to see him continue to grow and learn. The positivity during his visits is certainly contagious!

More info on the programme can be found at www.rootsofempathy.org

Well done to all involved. smile
