Learn with Mr. Lovett Week 1: Empathy

Week 1- Learn with Mr. Lovett

 

In our first lesson of the year, we will gather on MS Teams as a Catholic School Community to learn about empathy.

 

This month our focus is on building Empathy. All the Umbrella Skills can be built with practice and this month we are working to build the empathy piece of your child's umbrella of wellbeing skills.

 

Empathy is the ability to put ourselves in someone else's shoes and understand what they may be feeling. It is a key ingredient to successful relationships with our friends and family. High levels of empathy result in lower levels of conflict and better problem solving. It also helps us make new friends, keep the ones we have and build a stronger social network.
