On the 28th November a total of 200 primary school students from St Marys Primary School, Bowraville Central School, St Patricks Primary School and Tallowood Steiner School in Bowraville united for D.i.V.A at The Nambucca Community & Arts Centre in support of the 16 Days of Activism – a global campaign raising awareness and taking action against violence.


D.i.V.A stands for DANCiNG VIOLENCE AWAY and these students did exactly that!


They embraced the concept that Kindness Rocks! Coz Violence Ain’t Cool! The hall was filled with beautiful drawings and artworks sharing the children’s ideas about being kind to each other over any form of violence.


The posters are on display at the Nambucca Community & Arts Centre; Phoenix Café in Bowraville; and Macksville Library until the 19th December.


Special thanks goes to all the participating schools for supporting the cause; One Mob Radio for hosting the music; The Nambucca Community & Arts Centre for their wonderful space; Nambucca Woolworths for generously supplying ample fresh fruit and water for the event; Our Lady of the Star Sea Church for kindly offer their grounds as a meeting point; the Anglican Parish of the Nambucca Valley for their contributions; The Valley Hub; NBN News; Phoenix Café; and Macksville Library.
