R U OK? Day – Chevalier College
12th September 2019

R U OK? Day

Sunny yellow tees and smiley faces are the garb for today as Chevalier College gets behind R U OK? Day.

Clancy House Leaders Darcy Howard and Breanna Rennie, along with Well-being Coordinators Fiona O’Connell and Jonathan Dinning have organised lunchtime activities at the college, including live music, food stalls and the installation of a big message board for the students to write positive affirmations and messages of hope. There’ll also be a chance to burn away any negative thoughts by writing them down and throwing them into a blazing fire pit.

R U OK?Day is our national day of action dedicated to reminding everyone to ask, “Are you OK?” and to remember every day of the year to support people who may be struggling with life’s ups and downs.
This year R U OK? Day encourages everyone to Trust the Signs, Trust your Gut & Ask R U OK?
We want everyone to feel confident they know the signs someone might need support by listening to what they’re saying, seeing what they’re doing or knowing what’s going on in their life. Whenever you notice a change, no matter how small, we want you to trust your gut and start an R U OK? conversation.

Nearly 1 in 2 Australians (49%) believe they’d be more confident starting an R U OK? conversation if they knew the signs that could indicate someone’s struggling with life.
