Yellowquill School is preparing for the return of the Roots of Empathy program.
40,000$ has been invested by the province to expand the Roots of Empathy Program on behalf of The Healthy Child Committee of Cabinet.
The program teaches compassion and respecting others feelings. Sheryl Ross, who is the Guidance Councillor at Yellowquill School believes the program does make a difference.
Ross would like to see more schools involved with the program. She adds the younger a child is when they go through the course, the more caring they will be towards their community later on in life. Manitoba was the first province to introduce the program.
