Raising awareness of violence against women
Wednesday, 28 March 2018
Our Prefects have worked hard to raise awareness of violence against women. Our work with White Ribbon Australia to stop violence against women has seen students take an active role in awareness raising and advocacy. We have focussed on the issue through assemblies, mentor discussions and the boys participating in the ‘Walk a mile in her shoes’ event held today.
Students from both The Hutchins School and our sister school St Michael’s Collegiate, along with Hutchins staff, wore heels in a fun relay to raise awareness for a serious cause. Students were reminded of the alarming domestic violence statistics and the importance of engaging men and boys to make women’s and girl’s safety a man’s issue too.
