Violence on the rise

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Front Page -

THERE has been a con­stant rise in do­mes­tic violence in the south­east met­ro­pol­i­tan area.

BREAK­ING out their most fab­u­lous pink out­fits, the com­mu­nity from Pen­rhos Col­lege’s Ju­nior School raised more than $1400 through an event or­gan­ised by a group of stu­dents.

Year 6 stu­dents Am­ber and Au­tumn Weston, Mia Ross, Chloe Pon­tre and Keely Lin­quist were the brains be­hind the Pink it Up Fun Run in Oc­to­ber.

Head of Ju­nior School Trish Somers con­grat­u­lated the girls on their ef­forts to raise money for breast can­cer re­search.

“I com­mend th­ese girls and all of our fam­i­lies who have been so gen­er­ous in sup­port of th­ese im­por­tant or­gan­i­sa­tions,” Ms Somers said.

“All money raised will go to the Chil­drens’ Leukaemia & Can­cer Re­search Foun­da­tion and the Bully Zero Aus­tralia Foun­da­tion, which is aimed at halt­ing bul­ly­ing.”

Fur­ther funds raised from the sale of cup­cakes were do­nated to the McGrath Foun­da­tion for breast can­cer re­search.
