Fluro Friday - Senior School Students Shine Light on Mental Health

As part of the ‘Reach Out Month’ at Prem, last Friday students in the Senior School took part in ‘Fluro Friday’ to raise awareness for mental health issues. For this event Prem partnered up with the One Wave, an Australian non-profit organisation that uses surfing and colourful clothing to tackle mental health issues and build community. One Wave founder Grant Trebilco says that wearing bright colours makes the issue visible and gets people talking about mental health. He spoke to senior school students, giving the message that if you’re experiencing depression “it’s ok not to be ok and it’s ok to ask for help.” During Fluro Friday senior school students took part in social volleyball and yoga events that were aimed at building community and emphasising healthy, social activity.
