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.
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.
