St Mary’s School offers and runs a program called “Seasons for Growth” as part of our Pastoral Care.
Seasons for Growth is a Grief Education Program which helps children develop skills to cope with changes they experience through death, separation or divorce in their families.
"A healthy society where grief and loss are recognised as a normal part of life and appropriate support is available to all".
The Seasons for Growth program aims to produce a sense of resilience, personal growth and acceptance of change in people’s lives. Our RE Coordinator and several parents are trained to run the program, which uses creative learning activities to develop life skills in communication, decision making and problem solving for the participants and also encourages peer communication and support.
