Whitefriars boys unite to put an end to violence

The boys at Melbourne CaSPA School - Whitefriars College, Donvale - have been encouraged to speak out to help tackle violence against women

The school marked last month's White Ribbon Day with a barbecue to raise money for White Ribbon Australia, which raises awareness of violence against women.

The boys formed a ribbon on the oval with a drone flying over to create a video, now on the college's Facebook page.

A video of senior students speaking out against violence is also on the school's Facebook page.

College youth worker Brie Ellett said students were encouraged to sign a pledge banner.

'Men speaking to other men about violence against women is a powerful catalyst for change because women's safety is a man's issue too,' Ms Ellett said.
