E is for Empathy

The Student Government did an amazing job of hosting the Term 2 Awards Assembly on Thursday. If you missed it, I’m sorry you did! The children were just awesome. We’ve been focussing on Empathy at school this month and the kids used the letters in empathy to create scenarios and then role-played how to be empthatic in each situation. It was so much fun and so instructive for all of us! Here is your quick reference for empathy, compliments of Lisa, Jordan and the 2019 Student Government ~

E – Everybody needs to feel included

M- Model and Mirror – Talk about how you feel

P- Put yourself in someone else’s shoes

A – Ask if you can help

T – Treat others the way you want to be treated

H- Is it helpful or HURTFUL?

Y – You will feel better and they will feel better
