RU OK?

5/09/2014
Our seniors are leading others in participating in RU OK Week. They have been busy preparing “buddy benches” and talking to the younger year levels about “Filling their Buckets” and “Friendship Soup”.
“Have you filled a bucket today?” is a story by Carol McCloud that asks children to reflect upon the art of giving, and how, by through the art of giving we also receive. The “bucket” of someone else is  filled when we give a compliment, share a story or are thoughtful to them and while doing this own bucket fills up as well. Our junior school is focussed on bucket filling each week on assemblies but in our RU OK Week this focus is going whole school
Friendship soup is about all the different aspects that go into making good friends and how we can help to determine the mixture that makes up our friendship group. The “buddy bench” is a simple idea to eliminate loneliness and foster friendship in the playground. Our senior students are going to spread the message of inclusion and kindness.
