​R U OK Day and Flannel for a Farmer

The end of last Term saw us celebrate ‘R U OK’ day and Flannel for a Farmer. We are very happy to announce that, along with Wynnum Plaza Coles, we raised $1620.00 for the Farmers appeal. That is terrific and it certainly makes us feel good to know that we have helped in some small way to financially assist our farmers. The students heard Bryce Peters speak of his time working on a very large cattle station in central Australia and his story of the hardship, that can at times be associated with farming in this arid land of ours, was very well received as it came from his personal experience of hardship.
Kim Hutchinson also spoke of the current plight of our outback communities with some startling facts of how limited the rainfall has been in the past five years or so. There are some children who have been born who have never seen rain – hard for us to imagine.he saw us celebrate ‘R U OK’ day and Flannel for a Farmer.

Looking out for each other is one facet of our school life that we work on each day. Students celebrated ‘R U OK’ day by firstly checking on each other and their teachers. Rosie and Darcy, our Social Work students who look after our Social Hub, organised an activity where students committed to paper, messages of hope and care for each other. These will be displayed at the school this week. I read the parade a story called ‘Happy’, a story of mindfulness - all about connecting with ourselves and the world around us. It spoke of some simple steps on the path of happiness, a place we all need. We also had a sing-along and performance of ‘Home among the Gumtrees’ which also made for a lovely parade – such talented Year 9s Music students.
In short, it was a great day at Wynnum High!
