“We use babies to teach empathy because everyone loves babies,” The world’s youngest teachers are showing elementary students how to be better people.
Roots of Empathy celebrated its ninth year with a wrap party and presentation Thursday at Thunder Bay’s Kingsway Park School.
Students and the families involved with Roots of Empathy met at the school to give thanks and say good-bye to the babies who taught older children how to be more caring and compassionate.
Kingsway didn’t host a Roots to Empathy program; sister school Hyde Park did. Hyde Park’s gym couldn’t accommodate the large crowd.
