Empathy – humankind’s greatest quality

On a rainy Friday afternoon in late November, Ms Roumanas’ Year 4 class gave us a beautiful and thought-provoking assembly on the important subject of Empathy.

The subject was simply and clearly explained for all those watching to fully comprehend exactly what empathy is, and short scenes of actions that were – or were not – empathic were relayed to us.

Empathy is: seeing with the eyes of another; listening with the ears of another; and feeling with the heart of another.
