Encouraging Empathy

Empathy is such a neccessary part of being a human being but it doesn’t always come naturally. It needs to be modelled and discussed and encouraged. We talk about emapthy all the time at CGS but it was nice to focus on it specifically in the month of March. Empathy is often referenced when we talk about sadness or difficulty – that it is important to empathise and put ourselves in someone else’s shoes when times are hard. At the assembly, Marie also highlighted how we can be empathetic when times are happy too, that empathy is about feeling someone else’s success or joy. Congratualtions to the character ed certificate recipents this month, their presence and efforts at school make life so much sweeter!
