The 2017/2018 Roots of Empathy programme in 5th Class has come to an end. The final Family Visit took place on Tuesday, June 12th, when baby Joey came to visit for the final time for the final theme. It was in one sense a sad occasion, and yet it was a happy time, as the class, Amie, Miriam and baby Joey celebrated the year that Joey has spent visiting 5th Class. Some lovely photos were shown, a beautiful Roots of Empathy tree was presented, with all the boys' wishes for Joey, a DVD was shown of Joey's year with the class, from his first visit in October 2017 to the visit for theme 8, and everyone could see how much Joey has grown, and the celebration was rounded off with some sweets, chocolate and drinks!
A big thanks to baby Joey and his mum Amie for helping to make the Roots of Empathy programme so successful this year. Of course, a huge thank you to Miriam, who, as the RoE facilitator made it all so interesting and engaging every week.
