White Ribbon Day at St Mary’s
LAST Friday, November 22, students began the day with a special White Ribbon Day assembly.
Students took the White Ribbon Day oath to ‘Stand up, Speak out and Act to prevent violence’ of any sort, at any time, and in any space.
Throughout the day the wellbeing leaders of the school, Molly Judge, Hannah Brown, Morgan Demarco and Josh O’Brien, planned and provided opportunities for students to brainstorm and role play practical ways that they could stand up, speak out and act to prevent violence.
Following the making of a white and olden day sweet treat the students were ready to spread words of sweetness and kindness through writing a unique message of peace to a white ribbon.
Students and staff member messages were then affixed to a jacket which will be placed in a prominent position around the school each year for the “16 days of Activism”.
