Thank you to all who attended our ‘How can teachers support Bereaved Children in the Classroom’ webinar last week in partnership with Irish Hospice Foundation
During the webinar we had people joining us from every county of Ireland (including the North) and some people from as far afield as India, South America and the USA. The audience was mainly school staff including SNA’s, teachers (preschool, primary and secondary), guidance counsellors & principals.
The aim of the webinar was to support teachers to have conversations about death and bereavement to help you respond to questions and concerns which will arise when schools open. We are also very aware that staff are coming back to schools having to deal with lots of uncertainty, unprecedented change & lots new procedures while also dealing with their own issues.
We are now sharing some useful resources and information with you so that you may use for your own reference and also share with the whole school community as appropriate.
