Recently John Tonkin College held R U OK? Days. It was a reminder that on every day of the year we should support people who may be struggling. But also, that there’s more to say after R U OK? If someone says they’re not OK make time to listen, encourage action and check in.
The students were involved in various activities on the days, including staff v student volleyball game, delicious yellow food, had yellow hair spray and nail polish applied and participated in fun lunchtime activities such as a donut eating contest and sack races.
We had local community stalls which support Mental Health engage with our students and support the days. You can learn what to say after R U OK? at https://www.ruok.org.au
