World Empathy Day

In the run up to Empathy Day this week, our Year 7 pupils have been studying ‘Wonder’ by R. J. Palacio. In a recent assignment, they were asked to put themselves in the shoes of one of the novel’s main characters, Jack, after he is asked to be a guide for a new pupil at his school. The new pupil, August, is ten and was born with significant facial abnormalities. Mrs Byrne was blown away by the Year 7 diary entries, including these words from Ben: “I think it is really important to say kind words and if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say it at all because you could hurt someone’s feelings.” Great work, Year 7.
