Thursday was national RUOK Day and Good Shepherd Catholic College got into the spirit with a day full of activities.

Teacher Jade Marinelli said they had a number of activities through the day starting with a barbecue breakfast.

“Our students leaders greeted our students and started having some conversations with students they would not normally get to talk with,” Ms Marinelli said.

“Right now our students are rotating through various activities. So we have an obstacle course at the moment and at the end of that obstacle course go into a ball pit, where there are balls with conversation starters on there.”

She said while students are in the ball pit, they are having nice conversations with students who again, they may not have necessarily talk to.

“Some of the rotations we have today are different trivia questions, and about the services here in Mount Isa and who the students can come to if they are not feeling okay,” she said.

“We have a number of different number of activities that are all based around with having meaningful conversations.”

At the end of the day there was a school concert and a number of music students perform to the college.
