St. David grade 1 students, Deacon Lucas and Alfy Kimpioka and Sudbury Catholic Schools Superintendent of Effectiveness, Rossella Bagnato

May 5, 2016 - Rossella Bagnato, Superintendent of Effectiveness for Sudbury Catholic Schools visited Mrs. Cimino's grade 1 class during Catholic Education Week to teach the students about the importance of empathy. "Empathy helps to create a healthy, loving school community. As a classroom teacher, I see the importance of teaching students to be empathetic at a very young age. Mrs. Bagnato used humour and literacy to connect a Inuit story to my students' everyday life. They discussed how to build trusting friendships and how to support others less fortunate than themselves. This was all done through the lens of humour and it was a wonderful life lesson." stated Mrs. Cimino, grade 1 teacher.
