We have our eyes on the future at John O'Gaunt School, it's what we're all about. And teaching and encouraging empathy is a very important part of that.
We're celebrating Empathy Week - but of course, this is something we work on and think about every single day, particularly through our Literacy programme at school. Reading everyday has so many benefits, but by 'walking in someone else's shoes' there are no limits to what we can imagine and achieve! By reading about other lives, we travel - through time, across the world and with other people from all walks of life - and we broaden our outlook and extend our possibilities. This builds empathy and with that, through big changes or small, we can make the world a better place.
