Rainbows Bereavment Support
We are pleased to announce an addition to our School programme. We will soon be having a weekly support group for any pupil who is expressing any difficulty or distress due to a change within their family circumstance or any painful loss. This programme is called RAINBOWS.
When something significant happens in a family, the entire family is affected. Even though death, divorce or other loss issues (such as marital breakdown) appear to be only grown-up problems, they do have a profound effect on the children who are touched by such experiences. If a parent dies, a divorce happens, or some other painful loss occurs, not only do the parents grieve, the children do also. Children may find it extremely difficult to verbalise their feelings of grief because of their age and inexperience.
We have some very sensitive, caring and trained adults who have said "yes" to helping these pupils put their feelings into words, work through their grief, build a stronger sense of self-esteem, and begin to accept what has taken place in the family.
If your daughter has experienced the death of a loved family member, friend or sibling, or is struggling through a painful experience, this will be an opportunity for her to share with a special someone.
