  1. Seasons for Growth

Seasons for Growth is a successful education programme that gives young people and adults the opportunity to learn that change, loss and grief are normal and valuable parts of life. The programme provides participants with the knowledge, skills and attitudes to understand and manage their individual experiences.

Originating in Australia, it can only be implemented by teachers who have undergone training  for the programme at the Notre Dame Centre in Glasgow.

Seasons for Growth is provided in age-appropriate groups to work through with a facilitator in small-group settings including primary age 6-8, 9-10, 11-12 and secondary age 13-15, 16-18 and adult.

Currently we offer the course to adults and primary aged children in local primary schools.
