Christmas Craft Fair Friday 14th December 5.00pm

At Holy Cross, we believe that social and emotional well-being is important in its own right because it impacts on everything that helps a child  to flourish and be the person they deserve to be. Within our school,  we create an atmosphere that is conducive to helping a child feel safe and secure. All of our staff are alert to recognising when one of our children is not flourishing and they take steps to find the reasons why. 

We offer a wide range of support:

Seasons for Growth is a loss and grief peer-group education programme to support young people aged 5-19 years and adults who are affected by change, loss and grief. It was first  delivered in 1996 and is well established in Australia, New Zealand, Ireland and the United Kingdom.

The Vision

A healthy society where grief and loss are recognised as a normal part of life and appropriate support is available to all.

Seasons for Growth is based on the belief that change, loss and grief are normal and valuable parts of life. It aims to produce a sense of resilience, personal growth and acceptance of change in people’s lives.

 

The children and young people’s programme deals with change, loss and grief associated with death, family breakdown, or any other form of separation.Seasons for Growth is a loss and grief peer-group education programme to support young people aged 5-19 years and adults who are affected by change, loss and grief.

Meet the worry monster family. Children are encouraged to pass their worries on to our worry monster family so that they aren't carrying worries around all day. 

Having opportunity to communicate feelings is part of the ELSA programme.

The Worry Monster Poem

I’m your little worry monster

I am always here

When worries pop into your head

Don’t let them turn to fear

Take a piece of paper

Make sure you write your name

Explain your worry

Write it clear and plain

Put the worry into my mouth

And let me eat the fear

Put a smile upon your face

Then give a great big cheer!
