Anticipated Death in New Zealand School Communities
Broughton, Katherine
Kairaranga, v9 n2 p41-46 2008
Few resources seem to be available to support school communities that have a child whose death is anticipated. The present article draws on the experiences of school staff and special education employees who have been involved in New Zealand school communities where a child was terminally ill and died. These experiences could help other school communities to provide optimal support and avoid pitfalls. Schools could use this article to develop a plan to fit their own unique situation. (Contains 15 footnotes.)
