Today Teachers and Students participated in R U Ok Day? Our Teachers wore yellow to show their support for the day. Students played games and activities, which taught them ways to communicate with their peers and others.
Games included '2 Truths 1 Lie" where students were asked to tell two true things about themselves and one false and their fellow students had to work out which was the lie.
Another activity was 'The Worry Jar'. Students were asked to write down any concerns, worries or problems that they might be experiencing. The Teacher if required, provided advice or sort help from our Welfare Team, the note was than placed into the jar. In a couple of weeks, the Teacher and Student will open the jar and revisit the issue that was a concern for the Student. They will then discuss if the issue has cleared what actions they took to rectify the issue and what if anything did, they learn from the experience.
We are encouraging Students to keep using the skills they are learning and to check in with each other, family and friends. R U Ok?
