Pink Shirt Day 2021

Pink Shirt Day, or Anti-Bullying Day, is a day when people wear pink to take a stand against bullying. This year, at Roots of Empathy, we dressed some of our ROE babies, or ‘Tiny Teachers’, in pink! At ROE, our babies act as a reminder of our own vulnerability. Through our ‘Tiny Teachers’ children understand that we are all bigger babies and therefore still vulnerable to bullying or any cruelty. Empathy is a brake against bullying. Our latest show in the Children’s Gallery displays anti-bullying art from our ROE program students.[/heading][carousel script=”flickity” flickity_formatting=”default” desktop_cols_flickity=”1″ desktop_small_cols_flickity=”1″ tablet_cols_flickity=”1″ pagination_alignment_flickity=”default” column_padding=”10px” autorotate=”true” border_radius=”none” autorotation_speed=”9000″][item id=”1615922329947-6″ tab_id=”1615922329950-10″ title=”Item”][image_with_animation image_url=”33352″ alignment=”center” animation=”Fade In” border_radius=”none” box_shadow=”none” max_width=”100%”][vc_column_text]

“School principals were asked if they had observed any outcomes or benefits of the ROE programme in the children. All six principals from the case study schools said that they had observed positive benefits in terms of, for example, less aggressive behaviors, a more caring attitude, improved concentration and fewer bullying incidents.” (Connolly et al., 2018, p.63).

“…the ROE programme was perceived by most key stakeholders in the case study schools to have positive benefits for the children; the children seemed to show more empathy, open up more about their feelings and, overall, have fewer disputes in the playground.” (Connolly et al., 2018, p.68)
