Stormbirds - Catholicare

Dear Families,

 

Catholicare has offered to run a 4 week group counselling session (Stormbirds) for children in the school who have been affected by the recent bushfires.

 

Stormbirds provides an opportunity for children and young people who have experienced a natural disaster to share their experiences of change and loss in safe and creative ways, understand and attend to their feelings, and learn skills for adapting and recovering. This takes place in an atmosphere of like-to-like peer support.

Session 1:            Change a natural part of life

Session 2:            Feelings and responses

Session 3:            Memories and support

Session 4:            Reconnecting

 

If you would like your child included in this program, please email me directly your child’s name, DOB and address by COB Wednesday 12 February (tomorrow). I will then be able to enrol your child and pass on any relevant information.

 

We envisage that this program would begin on Monday next week.

 

Many Thanks

Kate Markcrow
