On the website provided there are great suggestions of how to support people beyond saying are you ok?
When someone says they’re not ok, there is a guide to support you through how you can continue a conversation that could change a life.
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 significant positive difference to their life. https:///www.ruok.org.au/join-r-u-ok-day
At school R u ok day was acknowledged and part of the learning program this week.
The teachers used some of the age appropriate resources from the website to support their children to know how to indicate to someone that they are not feeling ok and also how to look after others who are not feeling good.
Over the past two weeks our students have had the opportunity to complete the Student Pulse Survey and the Year 5 and 6 students have also completed a wellbeing survey
When we receive the results from these surveys the staff will spend time reviewing this data to determine patterns and trends
The staff will work together to set goals and design a plan of actions to address any issues or areas where we could improve our practices.
