Welcome to Empathy Exchange

At Silvermine Academy, we believe in the power of community and the invaluable role parents play in the educational and emotional development of their children. Our initiative, Empathy Exchange aims to bring together parents and guardians from the SMA community and the Valley, to offer a platform to share experiences, insights, and support in a journey that can often feel isolating. 

The Empathy Exchange series is designed to foster a community of support among parents, enabling engaging conversations on topics that touch upon the challenges and triumphs of parenting. By facilitating an environment where experiences are shared openly, we hope to strengthen the network of care around our children and enhance the partnership between home and school.
