Djarragun College senior Drama students won second place in the A Powerful Minute competition, organised by the Queensland Police Service, at the beginning of the year.

Students wrote and filmed a sixty-second video, which aimed to bring awareness to the topic of domestic and family violence.

In particular, the film demonstrated students’ views about domestic violence-a topic usually only discussed from the perspective of adults.

Djarragun’s video came in a close second to the Gordonvale State High School Clontarf Academy, who took out the competition.

Second place in the competition meant our students were awarded $1,250 to spend on IT equipment to further support their studies.
