Mr. Russell's Class 2017/2018 are participating in the Roots of Empathy programme! This will be the 4th year that the hughly successful programme is running in our school. See photos from Roots of Empathy 2016/2017 here.
The Roots of Empathy programme began in 1996 when Mary Gordon, child advocate and parenting expert, started the program with 150 kids in Toronto, Canada. Her goal was to help create a society where people were kind to one another and thought it would be best to start with children who are just developing their social skills.
The programme teaches the class to understand other people's feelings -
We are delighted here in St. Stephen's, to be able to welcome baby Joey to Mr. Russell's 5th Class for the year. Click on the links below to see photos from the Family Visit for that theme! (updated after each Family Visit)
