Empathy Lab at Ballakermeen

Categories: Other,

Ballkermeen Library’s work on developing activities around Empathy Day (in June each year) has been recognised in this year’s Empathy Lab School Starter Toolkit where our library is featured as a ‘case study’ for other high schools to follow when planning Empathy Day activities.

Librarian Ros Alcock said, ‘It is great to have Ballakermeen’s work highlighted in this way; empathy day focusses on the way that reading fiction can build empathy and understanding in the reader, a life skill that can only be good for the individual and for society as a whole. We are delighted that Ballakermeen’s students are leading the way in taking part in this. ’
