The Tree of Life program is designed to encourage children to engage in group-based activities with others around their lived experience.   

The  metaphor of a tree is used as the framework, to assist participants explore and speak about aspects of their lives (positive and challenging).  The Tree of Life encompasses:  roots (where did I come from), ground (where I live and what I do each day), trunk (special skills and abilities), branches (hopes and dreams), leaves (special people) and fruit (gifts).  

The sessions will be facilitated and supported by adults who have been specifically chosen and trained by PCA Families in the Tree of Life model.  Every adult holds a current Working with Children Check.  

Parents do not stay with their children, but are invited for a celebration of their children's work at 2.00pm on the Sunday afternoon.

Date Saturday November 11 and Sunday November 12, 10.00 am—3.00 pm (on both days)
