Wirreanda Secondary School White Ribbon Day
25 December 2016
Wirreanda Secondary School has committed to the White Ribbon “ Breaking the Silence “ in schools programs as part of the primary prevention of violence against women. We recognise that the primary prevention of violence against women is an important first step to use an educational setting as a platform to raise awareness and build a culture of respectful relationships.
On FRIDAY THE 25TH of Nov 2017 We show our support and raise awareness by;
A lunchtime BBQ facilitating conversations, raising donations and keeping up with already established traditions.
A lunchtime staff v’s students sporting event (more information coming soon)
An area set up for students to contribute to the ‘rise up’ SOUTHERN DOMESTIC VIOLENCE INITIATIVE supported by the city of ONKAPRINGA to decorate a t-shirt with a message of hope. (see attached)
Pledge boards where staff and students are encouraged to photograph colleagues and peers holding a ‘we swear’ poster and post them to social media using the hashtags #decdWRD2016 and #WhiteRibbonDay
Morning sessions during lessons 1+ 2 will be organised for some classes to join in on classroom based activities in the learning hub around RESPECTFUL RELATIONSHIPS
