Mental Health Week At Proserpine State High

Proserpine State High School celebrated Queensland Mental Health Week, hosting their second annual Healthy Mind, Body, and Soul Expo.

Joined by local organisations, Womens Well Co, PCYC Whitsunday, Whitsunday Libraries, and Whitsunday Sailing Club, were the Year 10 Business Students who showcased their entrepreneurial spirit by selling goods at market stalls.

The music students also rocked out on stage.

“We’ve got a range of community organisations that promote different healthy living options, as well as sporting clubs, and different clubs that are in the school,” explained the Expo organiser and school Guidance Officer, Karen O’Keefe.

“Deadly Choices, our music groups performing, our student leaders handing out pizzas, and our LGBT+ club handing out fairy bread – everyone got involved and it was a wonderful day.”

Throughout the week, the school also hosted art therapy sessions, drumming circles, and indigenous art groups.
