On Tuesday, December 15th we will be having our Character Assembly focused on the trait of "empathy" hosted by Ms Basta's Grade 4 class. Children from each of our classes that have demonstrated empathy this month will receive a character award. Parents are welcome to attend.
At Westminster we talk a great deal about the importance of being mindful towards our own feelings and how our words and actions impact others around us. We learn to have empathy for the challenges our friends may be experiencing and to show compassion, understanding and acceptance towards one another.
We also do this in authentic ways such as encouraging random acts of kindness and charitable thoughts towards others. Thank you to all those who have sent in non-perishable food items for our Food Drive which will help families less fortunate this month. You can still send in items next week. Thanks!
