Period Education Workshop

This is a fun and interactive workshop that runs for one hour and 15 minutes’ workshop; this allows time for questions. However, if you are not able to fit this time in please let us know as we can look at tailoring to your needs. We recommend this workshop done in groups of 30-45 students as with a smaller group it allows those feel more open to ask questions etc., but this can also be done with a bigger class. There is no limit to how many of these workshops you can run at your school, we don’t want anyone to miss out, so you can book now for the rest of the year.

The period education work shop covers all things to do with your period this is not a sex education class and we emphasize throughout the workshop the importance of talking to your caregivers if you have concerns.

Some things we cover are:

  • All periods products and their pros/cons and how to use them. How to dispose of tampons and pads, look after period underwear

  • Vaginal health (discharge, smell, that you don't need cleaning products -no soap in vagina).

 

  • What you actually discharge during a period/how to identify it/what is normal and expected, different colour period bloods
