On Thursday 10 September, Vasse Primary School hosted an R U OK? Day event to acknowledge the importance of starting a conversation with those in our social network (family and friends) that we are worried about.
R U OK? Day ties in beautifully to our RULER program by using the RULER skills of Recognise, Understand, Label, Express and Regulate to support self and social awareness. R U OK? Day recognises that there are people in our community who are struggling with life’s up’s and down’s.
Vasse Primary School students created a Monster Mood Meter, where every student’s mood was recorded with their own special feeling words written on the Vasse Monster Mood Meter.
Student’s wore their faction T-shirts to represent the quadrants of the Mood Meter and participated in a whole school Walk n Talk around the oval with some dancing to mark the event. In class, students engaged in a variety of activities designed to develop self and social awareness and how to start a conversation with those we are concerned about.
The experience was both uplifting and fun for both staff and students with the whole school experiencing an ambience of joy.
