Designed for middle school students, the LEAF Project aims to open up conversations around life, death and grief.
The LEAF Project
The school-based LEAF Project (Life. Education. Art. Feelings) is an interactive and fun program which provides a platform through art, for middle school students to open conversation and normalise discussion around life cycles, grief and loss, death and dying.
An initiative of The Hospital Research Foundation Group – Palliative Care and supported by CCH provides a unique opportunity for participating schools to become leaders in developing and normalising this sensitive and often taboo discussion.
A long-term goal of the LEAF Project is for this one-of-a-kind education to become embedded into South Australia’s school curriculum.

“When I started the LifeCycles Program, I started to think about nature and emotions. It also made me realise we are all part of a cycle in life, with beginnings and endings.”
