Roots of Empathy

The Roots of Empathy Program is nearing the end of another school year.

Lora-Dawn Angnatok is a teacher at Jens Haven Memorial.

The Program is aimed to school-aged children and helps them to gain knowledge from the babies in the program.

The babies are Alex Andersen, Avery Janes and Darcel Lidd.

Just this morning, little Alex paid a visit to the Grade 2 class.

Angnatok says the theme today was feelings.

The children learned that Alex’s development has a lot to do with his upbringing and how much love and praise he is shown by his parents.

The children were impressed that Alex can say a few words and walk with the help of others.

Angnatok says the Roots of Empathy Program will continue next year.

And that the Program is now being recognized and will soon be branched out to other schools in Labrador.
