RUOK? Day

On Thursday 14 September The Marcellin Campus will be celebrating R U OK?. The day is all about inspiring that simple, but important question “are you ok?”, and encouraging positive conversations that are geared towards people feeling supported and connected.

The RUOK? Day Ambassador Glenn Gerber will speak to students in Years 9, 10 and 11 on Wednesday 13 September during their Pastoral Period to discuss the meaning and importance of RUOK? Day, as well as strategies to start conversations.

On Thursday students from Years 7-12 are able to accessorise their College uniform with something yellow, to support the day. We will also have a lunchtime concert and students from Years 9 and 10 will be selling baked goods to raise funds for the RUOK? movement.

Below are suggestions for how students can accessorise with something yellow on the day.
