The students from Canowindra High School commemorated White Ribbon Day recently by recreating the White Ribbon logo on the school’s back oval.

The recreation replaced the usual White Ribbon march the school conducts, due to a majority of students being away on excursion. 

Earlier in the year, the school launched their Breaking the Silence White Ribbon campaign with the help of White Ribbon ambassador Danny Jackett.

In launching the school’s program Principal Neryle Smurthwaite said the school had long term plans for the program within the school including murals and displays around the school. 

“If we can teach the kids while they are young, hopefully we can change the future and they see it as something positive,” she said.
