Roots of Empathy at Murrays Bay School

 

Murrays Bay School have implemented the Roots of Empathy Program into our school.

 

Roots of Empathy was established in 1996, in Canada and is an award winning evidence based classroom program that has shown dramatic effect in reducing levels of aggression and violence among school children while raising social / emotional competence and increasing empathy.

 

Murrays Bay School have certified Roots of Empathy instructors, Liz McCartney and Amanda Murray each classroom every third session. They help children learn about baby’s needs and development and let the children see a loving relationship grow between parent and baby.
