Support : Rays
What is Rays?
Rays is a support group to help secondary school students:
- Understand, manage and express powerful emotions like anger, grief, guilt and fear
- Build self-esteem
- Confront challenging situations like bullying or rejection
- Cope with changes such as death of a loved one, family breakdown, parent’s remarriage, or moving house or moving schools.
How does Rays help?
Rays helps to shed light on life by:
- providing a safe setting in which young people can talk through their feelings with their peers who are experiencing similar situations. They are helped to express their feelings by an adult facilitator or listener.
- providing materials – booklets, magazines, crafts, music, games and activities – which form a structured programme leading the young people through their situation.
- enabling young people to name, understand and come to terms with the many emotions they experience.
What is the duration and frequency of Rays meetings?
Meetings are held during the week from 6:30-8:00 p.m. and run for thirteen weeks.
However, no Rays course is scheduled for 2015.
