Are you or your family going through a tough time? Since 1991, the DDSB has offered the Rainbows program. This program offers peer support to elementary and secondary students who are experiencing a loss through death, divorce or any other painful transition in their family.
At the secondary school level, the program is called Spectrum. Students meet once a week in small groups with a trained facilitator. Using journals, games and stories, the students discuss issues dealing with their loss. The key to the program is confidentiality. Each student and the facilitator sign a confidentiality contract.
