THE ART OF EMPATHY
THE ART OF EMPATHY – A CRUCIAL 21ST CENTURY SKILL
Empathy is indeed a 21st Century Skill that is a pillar in the science of Emotional Intelligence. Stepping out of our own mental and emotional echo chamber we create a bridge with another human being through empathy. We are able to share another person’s feeling and understand their story. We begin to connect with the humanity in another person. Reaching out and being aware of another person’s mental health challenges require a strong dose of empathy. Fostering Empathy as a skill in schools leads towards greater community awareness and a spirit of collaboration.
Our amazing Year 6 – 8 students compiled this incredible book The Art of Empathy, A crucial 21st Century Skill. They marvellously demonstrated a keen appreciation as to what it means to be empathic. They have shared their thoughts with compassion and wisdom for such young ones. We are incredibly proud of their creation.
