On Friday, 11 September, we are going to highlight the issue, “Are you okay?” (RU OK) by holding a Non-Uniform Day when everyone is encouraged to wear something that reflects how they are feeling. The idea behind this event is to hold an annual day in September dedicated to remind people to ask family, friends, and colleagues the question, “R U OK?”, in a meaningful way, because connecting regularly and meaningfully is one thing everyone can do to make a difference to anyone who might be struggling.

In the busy schedule of life, with a full program of school activities, there are always a great number of challenges as well as many blessings and rewards to be gained. These times can also be very demanding on our physical and emotional resources. The pressures of the school’s academic deadlines, normal life at home in managing a family, the added demands of exams for our Year 12s, and the responsibilities of being a supportive and instructive parent continue. This is a term where we need to work together to acknowledge a higher than normal level of demands, to communicate well, and generally care for each other’s well being. It is a good time to ask the question “RU OK?” while lovingly and graciously supporting the people we ask to answer.

We are asking members of our school community to ask each other the question “RU OK?” on Friday, 11 September. We will also have our Chaplain, Mr Blennerhassett, available for a quick 10 minute chat in the Secondary undercover area during the day.

As is our custom, we are asking for a gold coin donation on our Non-Uniform Day. All the proceeds will be for the support of the Christian School in Koja, Indonesia.
