White Rib­bon Day at St Mary’s

Mansfield Courier - - News -

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”.
