Our school vice-captain, Ibrahim Taha was a guest speaker at a special morning tea on Wednesday 8th March 2017 hosted by the Zonta Club of Sydney West. In front of students and staff from 15 different schools, Ibrahim gave an address on behalf of our school’s promise to Speak Up Against Violence towards Women. His message was in support of this year’s International Women’s Day theme of Be Bold for Change. At the same event, Sean Mansfield of Year 10 was one of 8 boys from our local government schools to receive an award for this work and efforts with White Ribbon day 2016. Sean was also asked to participate in the annual candle ceremony which involved the dimming of all lights at the Bankstown Sports Club and Sean holding a lit candle in recognition of women less fortunate than some, honouring the women who have died as a result of violence perpetrated by those that have loved and trusted. Both students are true ambassadors of our school.
