THE Western Health and Social Care Trust (Western Trust) are celebrating their youngest teachers.
A group of 18 local babies and their families were congratulated recently for their contribution to teaching the internationally recognised 'Roots of Empathy' (ROE) classroom programme to children from local schools.
Roots of Empathy is an evidence-based, classroom programme that raises social and emotional competence through increasing empathy and reducing levels of aggression among participating primary school children.
The programme is funded by the Public Health Agency (PHA) as part of their commitment to give every child "the best start in life" and is co-ordinated and led by the Western Trust Health Improvement Department in partnership with the Education Authority.
