Students Learn a Valuable Lesson

Recently, in an exercise to gain empathy for a young student, the principal at Holy Family elementary school in Whitehorse tried an interesting experiment.  To allow students to realize what they often take for granted, the principal had students take turns in a wheelchair for a day.  While students were only offered a glimpse into what life is like for their fellow student, many felt the experiment helped them gain some perspective and were able to better empathize with their classmate.  Check out more on this story from CBC News.
