A male student from Kepnock High School has spoken out at a White Ribbon Day breakfast at Bundaberg RSL this morning .
The student spoke to 227 attendees on what domestic violence means for younger generations and promoted its elimination.
He was one of 40 students to attend the event.
Central Queensland University’s Associate Vice-Chancellor, Professor Andrew Bridges, says the event shows a local desire for change.
Andrew Bridges: “I think we are making a lot of headway in our community here in Bundaberg and the Wide Bay. It was recognized today that got one of the highest proportions of White Ribbon Ambassadors here in our community and I think it’s very important to recognize that, yes, we’ve got a long way to go but at the same time there’s an awful lot of people here in Bundaberg who want to make that cultural change, who want to make a difference.”
