Loss and Grief are issues that effect all of us at some stage of our lives. Learning to deal effectively with these issues is central to personal well-being and happiness. Unresolved grief can also affect a student’s learning. Good Shepherd School is proud to be offering an Australian education program called “Seasons for Growth” every alternate year. This program is designed for children who have experienced significant change in their family because of death, separation or divorce.
The program aims to support participants by exploring issues such as change, loss, managing feelings, coping strategies and support networks. “Seasons for Growth” is an 8-session program, which concludes with an additional ‘Celebration’ session. The groups will also have the opportunity to meet again towards the end of the program to reconnect with their group and discuss ongoing issues.
If you think your child would benefit from the Seasons For Growth program we would encourage you to talk to him/her.
Good Shepherd School is pleased to offer this program and we are confident that it will be a valuable growth experience for those involved. Information for parents can be found at www.goodgrief.org.au. Under Children and Young People’s Program, there is additional information and a short video which very clearly explains the program.
This program will be offered every alternate year.
