Chester Hill High School was invited to participate in a program to look at the relationship between Police and Muslim students.
The program was called the Stand Tall Project and this involved Muslim students in our year 10 group being invited to participate in a ramge of activities working with Bankstown Police over a 6 week period.
The boys were first and 13 boys completed the three week program followed by 9 girls, combining with Bankstown Girls High, completing their three week program. Topics included; road safety, general policing, domestic violence, the law, plus building positive relationships through discussions, games and excursions to Luna Park and Villawood Bowling and Laser Challenge with Banksown Police.
The program finale was the students receiving certificates from the Bankstown Superintendent in front of their parents, friends and the media.
The students were positive ambassadors for Cheso and congratulations go to all 22 students.
