Today is RUOK? Day. The national day dedicated to reminding everyone to ask, “Are you OK?” and to remember every day of the year to support people who may be struggling with life’s ups and downs. This year’s RUOK? theme was ‘When you notice a change, no matter how small, trust your gut, ask R U OK?’ and to encourage everyone to start a conversation that could change a life. 

As part of Tench’s commitment to the wellbeing of everyone in the St Dominic’s College community, we supported the national suicide prevention charity R U OK? by setting up a conversation corner in the morning, at recess and during lunch. We set up giant Jenga, to stay connected and to have a laugh with our mates, because we know being social and belonging to a supportive community is key to a happy life!

Don’t forget to trust your gut and ask RUOK? if something doesn’t feel right!
