White Ribbon Day Activities

- December 8, 2017

The Infants' Home participated in the Inner West Council's '16 Days of Action' campaign for White Ribbon Day.

The campaign will have activations accross suburbs of the Inner West, and as part of this, Council's Magic Yellow Bus visited Johnston Park in Dulwich Hill on Friday December 1st.

Our social worker Samantha ran a pre-school activity with toddlers based on the books “Hands are Not for Hitting” and “Words are Not for Hurting”. Following the book reading, children made a pledge to uphold the sentiments of the book by painting their handprints on a giant drop sheet. All children took home a copy of the 'My Safety Network' hand model to discuss their 5 safe people with their parents or carers. The NSW police department also spoke to parents and children and participated in the hand painting activity at McNeilly Park.
