Mount Temple is delighted to re-introduce the Rainbows programme to
our school life.Rainbows Ireland is a voluntary peer-support programme to
assist students who are grieving a death,separation or other painful
changes in their family. Rainbows helps by providing a safe setting in which students can share
their feelings,emotions and struggles with others who have shared
experiences.They are supported in this by a trained facilitator and all
information shared is confidential.Facilitators are teachers in the school
who care about the grief of students and who are there to listen to what the
students say.The participants will follow a 12 week programme and
meetings will be held during lunch in M7 every Tuesday starting on the 12th
December. If you feel that your son/daughter would benefit from Rainbows please
