Leavers Week

We had a blast at Leavers Week!

KISS (Keep It Safe Summer) Officer Carley Robbins and her team headed down to Dunsborough for a big week on Monday the 20th November, while Gay Men's Outreach Officer Matt Bacon and volunteers went over to Rottnest on Wednesday 22nd November for the Beach Party.

 The crew in Dunsborough hung out at The Zone each night doing activities around contraception and responsible service of alcohol. During the day, they were based at Dunsborough foreshore playing games and giving out Leavers goodie bags packed with the ever popular Mi Goreng, condoms, water bottles, lollies, wristbands and fun merchandise kindly donated by SHQ. They also attended Meelup Beach Party where lathes were given out to young people in return for doing a quick survey on topics such as sexual healtj, alcohol and drugs, and consent. 

The Leavers loved this years condoms designs, with the special Leavers 2017 condoms being quick to go, and the animal meme condoms provided a good laugh. By the end of the week, we'd handed out a total of 12,000 condoms to young people celebrating at leavers week. 

Thanks to all staff and volunteers who were involved! See photos from the week below.
