AUBIN Grove Primary School students were covered with bursts of colour as part of a fundraising run for mental health awareness.
BURSTS of colour splattered on to squealing children when Aubin Grove Primary School students participated in a fundraising colour run.
The event was part of the school’s wider wellbeing day, where students were able to learn about mental health, resilience and feelings.
They also learnt how to ask if someone was OK and listen to motivational speakers talk about their own experiences.
Aubin Grove Primary P&C president Kelly Schrader said no one was a blank canvas and everyone was marked by their experiences, a concept demonstrated when the colours marked the students as they ran.
“Our Kidsmatter team, in conjunction with our school community, understand the importance of exploring mental health and having open conversations from a very young age about the importance of developing a positive mental outlook, in addition to what to do if this is not the case,” she said.
“Each year we have a week that focuses on health and wellbeing for our whole community, so conversations are started and education about positive health and wellbeing are had in our classrooms.”
Funds raised will support classroom resources.
