Venue: The Royal Botanic Garden Sydney

The RUOK? Conversation Convoy along with Ambassadors came to the Garden for an exciting full-day program. Throughout the rest of the day NSW high-school students partook in a variety of exciting and immersive workshops lead by Red Room Poetry poets, Crossfit athletes, Community Greening and Botanic Gardens Aboriginal Education staff.

Students who attended returned to school as R U OK? Champions. We hope that they will pass on the messages and skills that they have learnt on the day, to help grow a healthier and more resilient school community.
