International White Ribbon Day
On Wednesday 25th November the students and staff at Chiswick School took part in International White Ribbon Day. White Ribbon UK is the leading charity that works with men and boys, campaigning and educating to change the cultures that lead to abuse and stop violence before it starts.
Many pupils supported White Ribbon Day by wearing one and donating to charity. The school was delighted to raise over £120 for the charity. It is the world’s largest movement of men and boys working to end violence against women and girls, promote gender equality, healthy relationships and a new vision of masculinity.
The campaign began in Canada in 1991 and has now spread to over 60 countries around the world. White Ribbon asks everyone, and men in particular, to wear white ribbons as a sign that they have promised to never commit, excuse or remain silent about violence against women and girls. A big thank to all staff, students and parents who supported this cause and donated money on the day.
