The White Ribbon Committee

Sylvania High School is committed to the support of the White Ribbon Foundation through the establishment of a sub-committee of the SRC and other interested students who work directly with the Principal to develop a program of events to promote the prevention of violence against women and girls.

The White Ribbon committee will continue its work with new members drawn from the SRC, the senior leadership team and other committed students. The school hopes to continue to foster inter-school relationships and has plans to continue in partnership with local high schools into the future. The committee plans to continue fostering the value of respect in the school through this context and will recognise White Ribbon Day in November of each year through activities that draw on the successes of the past and new initiatives that are currently being developed.
