Hampton Park Secondary College is standing in solidarity with the Afghan community, with students and staff tying ribbons to the school’s fence in recognition of the situation in Afghanistan.

In a series of posts on its Facebook page, the school explained that it is placing ribbons in the colours of the Afghan and Australian flags on its fence, to show support and compassion for the wider Afghan community.

Members of the school community are invited to tie their own ribbons on the fence too.
