Sutherland Shire White Ribbon Walk

Engadine High School

This year we once again marched with colleagues, peers, community members and friends as part of the Sutherland Shire White Ribbon Walk, to put an end to violence against women.

 It was a glorious day in the sunshine where we ensured every step taken counted towards the campaign that will make a change to society. We went live on Instagram for part of the walk, to bring our whole Engadine community into the excitement of the event. In the words of White Ribbon Ambassador Dale Palmer “We apologise for the world we have created for our young people, but we are more than confident that these young people will change it for the better.” The messages from Sutherland Shire Mayor Carmelo Pesce, the honourable Scott Morrison MP as well as our much admired Engadine HS parent and paramedic Mrs Kelly Ferguson, rang loud and clear throughout Dunningham Park. We need to stand up and speak out about violence in our community, supporting and protecting each other to make a positive difference. We could not have been more proud of our students and staff who participated in the walk, representing our school and broader community as they marched along with the 5,000 other participants. Thank you to Engadine Bowling Club for the use of their transport. See our social media posts for videos of the walk!
