A new school year – a new start
For children whose lives have been turned upside down by abuse, neglect or abandonment, school can play a huge role in providing stability and continuity. More than that, it provides a space to be a child among other children, a 'normal' experience in the middle of events that have made the child feel 'different'.
The start of the new school year (in January) is therefore a time of great excitement! There are new clothes (school uniform) and a new start, and lots of new possibilities to make a new start.
And meanwhile - the little ones stay at home with their carers and say good bye to their bigger brothers and sisters
