Team Alex

We focused on mental health for the first day, fundraising for the charity Youthbeyondblue that provides support services for 12-25 year olds struggling with depression and anxiety. A whole school assembly kick started the week, where our chaplain John Leary gave a presentation on mental health and where to get help. It was very informative and interesting to learn that 1 in 4 young people will experience a mental health problem at some point in their lives. The Marysville Steel Pan Band then entertained us with Pans on Fire, a music therapy program initiated after the Black Saturday Bushfires, which has grown into a talented musical group. At lunchtime a large group of enthusiastic students turned out to the stadium for a fundraising game of medical warfare, and to participate in brainteasers and coloring in mandalas.
