Woodbridge School Students Draw Attention to Community Mental Health

Woodbridge School in Tasmania has partnered with Beyond Blue’s “Be You” program to raise awareness and provide education around mental health in the school and wider community. Student leaders have been part of the Woodbridge Wellbeing Committee which has planned multiple school initiatives.

A highlight for the committee’s first year was the “Reaching Out Festival” which involved activities and entertainment to “bring people from all walks together to consider the topic of mental health”.

Acting Principal Shannon Bavage acknowledged the work of the passionate students and said. “I didn’t know what to expect, but it was absolutely fantastic,” said Woodbridge School Acting Principal Shannon Bavage.

The committee is hoping to run the event again in 2020.
