Message from the Kenny House leader:
Kenny is running our initiative in weeks 6 and 7 of the term to raise funds and awareness for the issue of domestic violence. We are hoping to support DV West by creating care packages for the women and children staying at their supported crisis accommodation. We have allocated each year group an item which we ask them to bring in and give to their homeroom teacher. The allocated items are as follows:

Year 7 - Writing journals 
Year 8 - small toys or body lotion
Year 9 - Body wash and loofa
Year 10 - Shampoo and conditioner 
Year 11/12 - Toothpaste and toothbrushes 

DV West would really appreciate these donations as many women show up to them with nothing but the clothes on their backs as they don’t want to alert their perpetrator or raise any suspicions by packing bags. It would mean a lot to these women to know that there are people in the community who are thinking about them. So please support the initiative by bringing in your allocated item during weeks 6 and 7. 

On Friday the 19th of November we are holding a purple accessory day to raise awareness for the issue of domestic violence. We encourage those students who have preordered our awareness packs to wear the purple facemask on the accessory day, we will also be selling purple accessories (ribbons, masks and wristbands) individually during week 7. Alternatively, you could purchase accessories such as purple scrunchies and socks to wear on the day. 

Thank you, 

Violet Neal - Kenny House leader
