Coláiste Mhuirlinne /Merlin College is delighted to be running the Rainbows Programme. Six teachers completed an intensive training programme to become Rainbow Facilitators and Co-Ordinator's.

What is Rainbows?

· Rainbows is a free, voluntary service for students of Merlin College who are experiencing loss following bereavement and parental separation.

· The Rainbows service is an inclusive service, supporting students experiencing grief and loss resulting from bereavement/parental separation/parental relationship breakdown /divorce.

· Attending the programme students are provided with an opportunity to meet with other students of a similar age and loss experience.

· For the Bereavement group it must be minimum of 3 months after the loss.

· It does not provide an individual one to one support service and does not provide counselling or a therapeutic level of intervention.

Merlin College will be running the Rainbows Bereavement and the Separation Groups at different stages throughout the year. For more information on the programme or to secure a place for your child please call the school office and a Rainbows Co-Ordinator will call you back.
