Piercestown will be re-opening its doors as a Rainbows venue in the coming weeks.
What is Rainbows? Rainbows is a national children’s voluntary service with an average of 6,000 children and young people coming into the service every year throughout Ireland.Rainbows supports children and young people in groups. There are groups for children and young people who have been affected by the death of a close family member and there are groups for children and young people whose family has changed because their parents have separated or divorced.. It is a 12 week programme run throughout the school year. Children like adults do experience grief and loss – it is often misunderstood and not recognised. Grief and loss not supported at a young age can become deep and unresolved in a young mind and heart and can affect future pathways to emotional and positive health and well-being.
If you are interested in your child attending Rainbows, further information around dates and days will be available in the coming weeks. If you have any immediate queries contact Siobhán on 053-9158854. Piercestown N.S is an open venue which is happy to accept both children from Piercestown N.S. and other schools.
