BEREAVED students have been helping each other deal with the loss of loved ones.
Pupils at The Priory School in Hitchin have set up a bereavement group to support each other.
Last week, they released balloons together in memory of their loved ones, attaching messages and tributes.
The 14 students meet weekly with a support colleague, Jasbir Jaswal, and help each other by talking about their feelings for those they have lost.
Mr Jaswal said: “It is so moving to see these students help each other grieve and deal with the loss of a parent, sibling or close family member.”

She said: “Our aim has been to encourage the group to feel happier.
“The balloon release and messages were meant to signify the setting free of our emotions.”
