This event is to raise much needed funds to support and enable us to achieve our aim of making our education program available to all schools in Bermuda. Compassionate Class will explicitly teach compassion and empathy through the lens of animal welfare. It is a six-week programme led by a primary classroom teacher, designed to go into primary (specifically Key Stage 2) classrooms across the island, public and private. This interactive, discussion and enquiry based programme allows children to consider what it means to be compassionate and understand the welfare needs of animals in Bermuda, in turn, helping them to develop emotional literacy. Students will work collaboratively to develop empathy skills for their school lives, family, community and beyond.
