It has been a very strange 18 months for young people – not just at home but in our schools too. The pandemic has reminded us all of the nearness of death and how we as a society look after ourselves and each other. How often do we hear the wisdom "children are resilient"? But coping with death and dying as a young person is not easy - especially the first time they experience the death of a loved one or friend. 

How does this play out in the classroom? How can our teachers equip themselves to best support their pupils going through such a trauma? 

That’s the focus of today’s podcast.
