Mental Health Week
Mental Health Week is a national event, held every October to coincide with World Mental Health Day (10 October). It’s an opportunity to promote awareness about mental health and wellbeing.
Harmony Day is a day to celebrate a commitment to harmony and mutual respect in a culturally diverse nation. The event’s major objectives are focused on reducing prejudice and to promote respect, fairness and a sense of belonging for everyone including those of different nationalities, cultures, religions and sexuality. The colour used to represent Harmony Day is orange. Students and staff are encouraged to wear orange ribbons and join in celebrations at lunch-time.
Weeroona College Bendigo offers a Breakfast Program to all students every Tuesday morning before classes commence (8am onwards), in front of the Performing Arts Building. We offer a variety of food including toasted sandwiches, juice, hot Milo, fresh fruit and other goodies available on a week by week basis.
The aim of the breakfast program is to assist teenagers to get a good start to the school day by providing them with the opportunity to share a nutritious meal in a supervised environment before school.
