Today Port Adelaide Football Club visited Wirreanda Secondary School, in the lead up to our Term 4 Respectful Relationships Positive Education Day and White Ribbon Day, to deliver the Power to end violence against women program to our Year 10 male cohort.
The program targets young men in Year 10 across South Australia and aims to address the prevalence of domestic violence within our community.
Research on domestic violence has told us that by the time young people reach their teenage years most have experienced or witnessed some form of domestic abuse.
This program provided our students with the opportunity to discuss the issue of violence against women and explore respectful relationships. In doing so, the program provided the information and skills necessary for young men to make informed choices to prevent violent behaviours in society.
Students engaged positively with the session and we look forward to Wirreanda Secondary School furthering our community connection with PAFC when they join us on November 24th for our Respectful Relationships Positive Education Day.
