R U OK? Day

Last year at this time we were celebrating a new beginning and a sense of happiness and hope as we came together on this day.

This year we are travelling through uncertain times, job losses, closures and the inability to come together as family and be with friends. Isolation has been difficult for us all.

So today, on R U OK? Day let’s acknowledge how we feel, talk about our feelings and acknowledge those around us who are feeling the effects of lock down. Asking others R U OK?  And giving them the opportunity to respond and offload some of their burden.

Today Pastoral Care distributed cupcakes to all staff and encouraged them to take a moment to acknowledge, share and ask, R U OK?

To all of you, take care and be gentle with you.
