R U OK? inspire and empower everyone to meaningfully connect with the people around them and start a conversation with those in their community who may be struggling.
You don’t need to be an expert to reach out – just a good friend and a great listener.
To raise the awareness at FGPS, students and staff participated in activities throughout the day. The students from Mr. D’s Rec/1 class discussed key words that describe what a good friend does and doesn’t do. When simplified, students can recognise these traits and behaviours and ask the question, R U OK?
Students from Ms. Nicole and Ms. Emma’s Year 2/3 Sea Turtles engaged in conversation bingo, asking questions to peers and making RUOK? posters to display in the play space, in the early years building.
Our FGPS Student Governing Council (SGC’s) took time out from recess and lunch to sell cupcakes, wrist bands, Kit-Kats and prizes from the lucky dip box.
At FGPS we all learnt how important it can be to ask, listen and check in with each other, to make sure we are all OK.
