Not Silent Not Violent at Sylvania High


22 November 2012


White_Ribbon_-_Sylvania_Group2Sylvania and Engadine High Schools went head to head today in a competition to determine which school had produced the best video message for ‘Breaking the Silence’; White Ribbon’s campaign to prevent violence against women and girls. Despite losing the competition, the SHS White Ribbon campaigners were all smiles after the unique event saw both schools commemorate the occasion together by sharing poetry readings, performance and video messages in real time. Both Engadine and Sylvania High Schools appreciated the attendance of White Ribbon ambassadors Peter Vines, Greg McCallum, Liam Dooley and Tim Bishop who had the onerous task of judging the competition. Sylvania High TV covered today’s event and are producing a video that follows the journey of both schools in 2012 as they explore the issues surrounding White Ribbon. The production will be shared statewide and is in part being supported by local TV producer, Al Ellis, who produces ‘The Crew’ for SBS.
