White Ribbon campaign

Congratulations to the St. Oliver’s TY White Ribbon Committee who raised a fantastic €683.82 for the charity - which aims to spread gender equality and end men’s violence against women. 
The students raised the money by holding a ‘wear jeans day’ in which students were allowed to ditch their school skirt or pants and wear jeans for the day. This was the final event in the White Ribbon 16 days of action celebration, which also included a flag raising ceremony and several workshops for the TY students. The school’s drama society also dedicated their school play, titled ‘Town’, to the memory of past pupil Jill Meagher and the White Ribbon mission. Well done to all!








Many thanks to Shane McAllister, Aoife Halpin and Eilis Halpin who represented St Oliver's at the White Ribbon launch in the Gibson Hotel, Dublin. St Oliver's is well on it's way to becoming the first White Ribbon school in Ireland on December 7th.
