R U OK? Day

Whole School

Our students wore yellow in recognition of R U OK? Day. This is a great reminder that we should always be looking out for our family, friends, colleagues and acquaintances.
The message for R U OK? Day 2020 is: THERE'S MORE TO SAY AFTER R U OK?
2020 has been a challenging year for everyone and circumstances have made it even more important for us all to stay connected and, for those who are able, be willing to support those around us.
You don’t have to be an expert to keep the conversation going when someone says they’re not OK.
By knowing what to say you can help someone feel supported and access appropriate help long before they’re in crisis, which can make a really positive difference to their life.
You don't need to be an expert to reach out - just a good friend and a great listener.
Starting an R U OK? conversation? Use these four steps:
1. Ask R U OK?
2. Listen
3. Encourage action
4. Check in
