A big thank you to Jan of the Asda Foundation for her continued support.
The school successfully applied for a grant to deal with the very real issue of Period Poverty.
Our School Captains, discussed the issues with Jan and their ideas of promotion within school.
We discussed, classroom boxes, boxes in toilet areas and they both suggested putting themselves and the female year representatives, as the lead within the school. They are going to prepare a PowerPoint to deliver at all assemblies to promote themselves as being the “go to” person.
They felt that there was still some embarrassment around periods and requirements, and that if you as a young female could speak to their peer, then this was a more comfortable option.
We will certainly make up kits for home and school use that students can pop in their school bag..
A very big thank you from us all at St Machar!
