A heartfelt thank you to all the students and staff who brought in products for Period Poverty Day! We have collected around 300 packets of disposable products as well as a great selection of eco-friendly reusable sanitary items. These will be passed along to McAuley for Women and Children, who provide accommodation and essential support for those fleeing domestic violence and poverty in Melbourne.

Thank you to the Social Justice Club who prepared 1200 bracelet making kits to show solidarity with those experiencing period poverty, and for making a wonderful video to raise awareness and to help reduce the stigma around this most normal human experience.

Well done to all the Pastoral Groups who participated in the ‘Period Trivia Challenge’ and to the winners, AJGU!

Thank you to all the Year 9s in Term 3 Horizon who made informative and thought-provoking posters to educate all students about period poverty, and for the beautiful painting of the collection boxes which will be used every Period Poverty Day in the coming years.

This was a wonderful effort to create a meaningful difference to those in need in our community.
