The Family Living Class at Roncalli has done quite a bit to
recognize this anniversary and has encouraged other men of the
community to show their support. A large white ribbon was made
and all the men in the class signed it. It was also brought to
the stadium in Port aux Choix while a hockey game was going on
and all the men there signed it. It was later displayed on the
side of school. Hopefully, people have passed by and have seen
As well, each person in the class has made a poster about
violence against women and the girls in the class are also making
a video about violence against women. A RCMP officer came to
the class to December 4 to talk about violence against women.
The student council passed out white ribbons to every male in
school during that day.
"The reason is to show people what's really going in
society. Most people are afraid to discuss violence against women,"
says Donald Spence, president of the student council and a student
in Family Living class.
"It increases the public's awareness of violence against
women. Our society must not accept any violence against women,"
says Glen MacArthur, a teacher at the school.
