RAINBOWS PROGRAMME

Tullow Community School is pleased to be able to offer the RAINBOWS programme to young people in the school who may have experienced a death, separation or other painful life change in their family.   This is an established and successful programme which is run throughout the country.  Tullow Community School will be beginning the programme early November 2010 (date to be confirmed). The RAINBOWS programme is run in small groups (max 7 per group), with a trained facilitator.  It is a self-help group, and provides a safe setting in which young people of the same age can talk through their feelings with other young people who have been through similar situations.   Using various fun activities, the programme helps young people to come to a healthy understanding and acceptance of these changes. If you would like your son or daughter to participate in this programme, please return the attached slip as soon as possible as places are limited.  

* PLEASE NOTE: All information is treated in the strictest confidence and will be used only for the purpose of ensuring children are grouped appropriately.
