All our Community Ambassadors across Wyre Forest are currently raising awareness of domestic abuse and violence in their schools and where to go for help and support. They are encouraging students to sign the White Ribbon Pledge during the 16 Days of Action and speak out and wear the white ribbon against violence and abuse and challenge the attitudes a minority of men who use or condone violence against women.
At Baxter College the Community Ambassadors have been going around handing out white ribbons to all students and staff that want to stand up and say NO to domestic abuse of all kinds. Ambassadors have even spent most of their lunches creating a large white ribbon made from handprints which is one of our ways to promote the campaign and is on display in Student Support.
At Stourport High School they have collected pledges for their white tree and currently creating a large ribbon from smaller ribbons to be displayed in their Student Reception. King Charles have made a flower of pledges, Wolverley are replicating their clock tower with pledges and Bewdley are recreating their school logo of a swan made from feathers with pledges, we look forward to seeing the photos shortly.
