This week the school hosted its inaugural White Ribbon Exhibition Rugby League game against Marsden SHS students.
The school is an active supporter of the domestic violence prevention campaign, hosting various events such as the ‘Stop the Hurting’ song writing workshop to write the second verse of rapper Illy’s song and participating in the  May Prevention Month where hundreds of students pledged to challenge behaviours and stand up against domestic violence.
Head of Department, Mr Cameron Webb said that the year 10 rugby league team wanted to join this campaign challenging Marsden State High School to support White Ribbon Day. 
“Whilst Marsden SHS won 20-4, both teams came together after the match and pledged in front of their families, to stand up, speak out and act to prevent violence against women, so everyone was a winner,” he said.
Forest Lake State High School Principal, Denise Kostowski said, “This match is just the beginning because we are committed to breaking the cycle of family and domestic violence in our community so we intend to make this an annual event”.
White Ribbon Day is held annually on 25 November and wearers of the white ribbon pledge to commit to raise awareness to end domestic violence.
