'Love bites' make mark on violence
THE students of Bremer State High School are taking a stand against domestic violence.
A group of Bremer's year 10s spent their last day of the school year selling ribbons and wrist bands for White Ribbon Day as part of their "Love Bites" program.
In August, the students took part in the program to write music and paint pictures about stopping domestic violence.
Year 10 student Richard Leu said it was up to young men to spread the word against violence to women.
"The message is that domestic violence is not the way. You should always solve problems without violence and anger," he said.
Ipswich Community Youth Service support co-ordinator Tanya Myatt said "Love Bites" was being spread in schools across the region.
"We're hoping to make this happen every year."
