SCDSB Holds Rainbows Workshop

January 23, 2004 - Mario Santoro (extreme right), Curriculum Coordinator with the Sudbury Catholic District School Board assists in staff training of Rainbow Facilitators at the Board’’s Education Centre. Rainbows is a support group for children who have suffered significant loss in their lives, either through death, divorce, or other painful transitions. The program is designed to provide these children with an opportunity to meet new friends who have shared similar experiences; to have trained caring adults present while they sort through and understand their grief; and to help them achieve healthy acceptance of what has happened in their families. The program consists of 12 meetings divided into two six-week sections. Once a week for approximately 40 minutes during lunchtime, the children meet in small groups to share an activity and discuss various topics in relation to the change in their family unit. At the end of each section, the children participate in special "Celebrate Me" days.
