The annual Roots of Empathy Baby Celebrations will take place in November, providing an opportunity for news media and others to learn more about Roots of Empathy and meet the parents and babies who are the stars of the school programme.

The Roots of Empathy Baby Celebrations are about acknowledging the babies who have inspired the children throughout the year.

The Auckland celebration will involve about 32 babies. Rugby league legend Awen Guttenbeil will speak at the event and local MP Peseta Sam Lotu-Iiga will attend.

Roots of Empathy is an evidence-based programme, proven to increase social and emotional competency. This programme works well to reduce bullying in schools.

The classes participate in 27 sessions, involving the participation of the parent and baby as the teachers for 9 of those sessions. Children learn to observe and interpret the baby’s communication, thereby building empathy with others.

In 2011, Barnardos has run 72 programmes, involving approximately 2000 children.
