Rainbows Programme

A programme to help children recover from a bereavement or painful experience is set to get underway in Portarlington this week.

The Rainbows Programme for Primary School children of the parish aged 7-13 years will commence in the Presentation Primary School, Station Road on Wednesday November 9  from 2.30pm – 3.15pm and every Wednesday at the same time.
