Home / News / Special Announcements / RUOK Day 2019


A group of our VCAL students have been working in conjunction with our wellbeing team to plan a week to support and remind our community that every day is the day to ask “Are you ok?”. The group have organised a variety of activities throughout the week, with an aim to promote awareness of topics around mental health and the importance of checking in with our friends and asking the question, R U OK?

Students will share the R U OK message and the steps involved throughout the week, leveraging social media to promote awareness along with a poster competition and balloon bouquet display. Our wellbeing team will have a strong presence within the weeks celebrations, joining our student ambassadors in wearing bright yellow t-shirts.

What you can do

  1. Ask R U Ok? – Ask the question
  2. Listen – Actively listen to the concerns
  3. Encourage Action – Who can support you with this? What adult can help you?
  4. Check In – Go back to the person and see how they are going, what action did they take?
