Wellbeing Week & RUOK? Day 2023

Last week we celebrated Health and Wellbeing Week and RUOK? Day… and in the myriad of activities present, curiosity was there. Curiosity at the petting zoo, curiosity in Founders Hall to see who was going to win the best shot… curiosity in asking those around us RUOK?curiosity in the school yard whilst boxes of healthy fruit were distributed to students what is a tangelo?… and in the classroom activities and presentations that focused on building our wellbeing.

Over the course of last week, the messaging on social media reflected some ideas that could help us be curious about our habits towards strengthening the pillars of our wellbeing – positive emotion, engagement, relationships, meaning, accomplishment and health.

Scott Rathman

Aboriginal Artist Scott Rathman has been working with students at the Primary Campus throughout the year. Scott is an Arrernte descendant who has lived the majority of his life in Adelaide.

In Week 8, Scott returned to paint the cubby houses, bringing them to life with colourful designs. The symbols represent animal tracks, encouraging children to explore, play and investigate the world they live in. We encourage you use the interactive camera or watch the video below of the process.
