150 school leaders from public schools across the Monaro Local Area Command attended the White Ribbon School forum, held at Bicentennial Hall recently.

Police say there were powerful presentations from Angela Barker, Katrina Fanning, Kristen Ellis and Alan Tongue.

The presentations kept students engaged and provided them with valuable information on how to respond to, and recognise, various forms of domestic violence.

As part of the day the students participated in a community art project by writing or drawing anti-violence messages on individual tiles.

The tiles will be installed on a large ribbon-shaped sculpture which will be displayed in a public park within the Queanbeyan Council Area next year.

At the end of the day the students returned to their schools with a little more knowledge around violence against women and domestic violence.

Police say hopefully they are inspired to be courageous and true leaders in cultivating respect within the local community.
