National Centre for Childhhod Grief
National Centre for Childhood Grief

The Tree screening to assist 

The National Centre for
Childhood Grief


The National Centre for Childhood Grief ("A Friend's Place") will host a special screening of The Tree to raise funds for its important work in counselling children who are dealing with grief.  


The event will take place at 6.15pm on Thursday March 10 at the Riverside Theatres in Parramatta, NSW, and will be followed by a Q&A expert panel on grief headed by the founders of the NCCG, Mal and Dianne McKissock.  Mal and Dianne have both been awarded Order of Australia Medals for their work. They have published several books on the subject, including,
"Coping With Grief"
the ABC's best-selling book ever. 


The 2006 Census tells us that 9% of people in NSW had lost either one or both parents before they turned 18 years of age. Yet, the discussion of death and grief remains such a taboo in our society.


"In The Tree, each member of the family expresses their grief in their own way and, ultimately, it is a very life-affirming and moving story."
Producer, Sue Taylor  

Come and join us for this most important event... 


When: 6:15 pm Thursday, March 10

Where: The Riverside Theatres Parramatta 

Tickets: $30.00 plus a booking fee
