The Seasons Programme at School
Seasons is a peer support programme for children who are missing someone important from their daily life. The loss may be due to the separation of their parents, the death of someone close to them, or other family change.

The groups are small, usually 3 or 4 children of similar age, with 2 trained adults who use a range of activities, stories, artwork and games to encourage the exploration and sharing of experiences. Topics introduced include feelings, telling our stories, memories, change, strengths and resources. Each programme ends with a Celebration.
Asked what they would tell other children about “Seasons”…  “I liked telling what happened in my life” – 9 year old boy. “Its very cool - you learn a lot and it helps you with your problems” – 9 year old girl. “I would tell them join the group!” – 11 year old boy.
Seasons Groups will be running at school again next term. For more information or to enrol your child contact.  Helen Pearson at School or Seasons Co-ordinator, Heather Free ph 021 0813 3586 email
